Secluded and romantic, Prussia Cove has an olde-world poetic feel, and is famous as being the home of the Carter family, The family were smugglers in the 18th century, one of whom, Harry Carter became known as the King of Prussia.
Formerly called the King's Cove, Prussia Cove is on the coast of Mount's Bay to the east of Cudden Point. It is a small, quiet and intimate place which could not support larger numbers without being ruined. No lifeguard cover, but surf rescue equipment located on the beach. There is a small privately owned car park, reached along a narrow single track road, which is usually full by mid morning in the school holidays. There are no facilities. The coves are at least ten minutes walk from the car park but space and access to these depends on the tide.
Dogs are allowed all year round.
