Hemmick beach - circular walks

Hemmick beach

The beach at Hemmick, Cornwall

Hemmick beach is mostly sand with some shingle near the high tide line and rocky ridges down either side. The beach is pebbly at high tide but as the tide goes out, sand is revealed. The series of small coves to the right are cut off on high tides. At low tide, an area of rock is exposed on the right-hand side which contains a number of rockpools. Due to its remote location and limited parking, there are usually not many people on the beach.
