Trevaunance Cove Beach

Description:
Trevaunance Cove is a nice sandy cove with a large area of rocks to the east of the cove. The beach is popular with families and surfers, but note that the car parks can get full on summer days. There are plenty of facilities close to the beach and there are nice seating areas above the beach where you can enjoy the view.
Safety:
Lifeguards in summer. Signs warn of strong undercurrents and falling cliffs. See Beach Safety Guide.

Access to the beach is via the road down to the beach, which becomes a slipway to the beach. The road and slipway are fairly steep and not suitable for wheelchairs.
