Circular walks visiting Polpeor Cove

The beach at Polpeor Cove, Cornwall

At the bottom of the slipway is a small beach of coarse grey sand which extends around the corner to a second area of beach at low tide. To the left of the lifeboat ramp is a large rock platform which extends out from the headland at low tide and contains a number of rockpools. The strong currents around Lizard Point make this an unsafe beach for swimming.
