A real 'locals' beach, off the beaten track and tricky to find without local knowledge.

On the northern edge of West Cornwall between Morvah and Pendeen. The cove is sandy and located at the end of a small valley. Until recently parts of the beach were out of bounds due to razor sharp fragments of an old wreck under the sand, but in 2004 the wreck was finally cleaned up making the beach safe once again. Seals are a common sight here.

Dogs welcome all year round.

As a surfing beach it does occasionally have a quality shorebreak on a high tide and is popular with local body-boarders.
