Gunwalloe is owned and looked after by the National Trust who are able to care and conserve areas like this thanks to their members, volunteers and donors. Car park free to National Trust members.

The tiny church of St Wynwallow, with a detached tower set into the solid rock of the headland, is located to the north side of the beach hence the name Church Cove.

Please note: Dogs are welcome on this beach except in July and August when a seasonal dog ban is in place between 10am and 6pm (2020)

Lifeguards man the beach between 7th July and 2nd September (2018).

Poldark connection:

Gunnwalloe on The Lizard relived its smugglings past when Aidan Turner and a hoard of other cast members and extras descended to film night-time ship wrecking scenes. An attractive sandy cove overlooked by the tiny church of St Wynwallow.
