Port Gaverne Beach
Port Gaverne is a sheltered, narrow cove with plenty of sand at low tide and neighbour to Port Isaac and may be the quaintest cove in North Cornwall nestling in under the cliffs.
A National Trust owned beach which has remained almost unchanged in hundreds of years is popular with families as it has plenty of rock pools. Once a thriving port landing slate and coal and a thriving fishing port for pilchards. The origin of the name Gaverne is thought to have come from 'Karn Hun' meaning rocky haven and is still spelt 'Port Gavern' by a few locals - pronounced 'gay-verne'.
