Priest Cove

Wild and rugged, Priest Cove is distinctively Cornish; a rocky beach with the remains of the Victorian mining industry and fishermen’s sheds overgrown by wild flowers.

Owned and cared for by the National Trust, Cape Cornwall is part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and has been shaped by the full fury of the untamed Atlantic. Priest Cove, a small fishing bay with a quaint slipway, sits in the crook of the Cape, overlooked by its imposing cliffs. A small man-made tidal pool has been built amongst the rocks whilst offshore, the Brisons Rocks, stand firm, known affectionately as 'General de Gaulle in his bath', they provide a sanctuary for many types of seabirds.
