Port Quinn

This quiet cove has a rocky beach that is only accessible at low tide. This is quite simply one of the most beautiful & tranquil spots on the coast of Cornwall.

Lantic Bay

This secluded beach located between Fowey & Polperro in southern Cornwall is normally only stumbled upon by ramblers. Many of the visitors to the Lantic Bay arrive by boat making it one of the county’s more exclusive beaches.

Church Cove

Located on the Lizard peninsula Church Cove is a picture postcard Cornish fishing inlet with crystal clear water. Ideal for snorkelling or just a relaxing day on a hot summers afternoon.

Chapel Porth

The entrance to Chapel Porth beach is breath taking. This beach is very much the Jekyl & Hyde of Cornish beaches. In summer it provides a tranquil beach paradise of clear blue water and golden sands. But in winter it seems to absorb the Atlantic weather storms and really show’s mother natures teeth! Due to the topography of this inlet, always be aware of the tide times to avoid being cut off.

St Georges Cove

Located not far from the vibrant fishing harbour of Padstow, this secluded cove provides stunning views across the Camel Estuary. The name of the beach derives from the St George’s Well, an ancient natural spring that lies to the rear of the beach hidden within the trees & shrubs.
