Tintagel

Tintagel, best known for its castle and its association with King Arthur, has two small beaches.


Tintagel Haven beach, also known as Merlin's Cove, is just below the castle. It is a small sand and pebble beach. Swimming is possible on a rising tide in good weather conditions. Access is not easy and the beach disappears at high tide. Of interest is the waterfall cascading onto the north east of the beach and Merlin's Cave. There are rock pools at low water and several good places for fishing from the rocks. Under the right conditions, the cove is good for snorkelling.

The cave gives access to another small, rocky beach on the other side of the headland known as Westside Cove. This beach is not safe for swimming due to strong currents.

Both beaches are dog friendly with dogs allowed all year round.

There is safety equipment at Tintagel Haven.





Trebarwith Strand

Trebarwith Strand Beach

Trebarwith Strand is excellent for surfing and the sands are popular for families and children.

When the tide is low, the sea goes out 300 yards (270 m) uncovering an expanse of sand over half a mile (800 metres) wide.

The left side of the beach is sandy, while the right is more rocky with some interesting rock pools.

At high tide the beach is completely covered by the sea. The tide comes in quickly so exercise caution to make sure you do not get cut off by a rising tide. Take note of the signs warning of strong currents, large waves and possible falling rocks.

There is a lifeguard service provided by Tintagel Surf Lifesaving Club.

Trebarwith Strand is dog friendly with dogs allowed on the beach all year round.

The access onto the beach is not suitable for wheel chairs.

Hole Beach

Hole Beach is the furthest east and is inaccessible except for the lowest two hours of the tide.

On the right side of the beach it is very good for snorkelling. The beach is also popular for fishing as there are many Sea Bass along this stretch of the coast.

Exercise care when visiting to ensure you do not get cut off by the tide.


Vean Hole Beach

Vean Hole Beach is a continuation of Lill Cove.


Lill Cove Beach

Lill Cove Beach is just to the right of Trebarwith Strand's main beach. At low to mid tide it is possible to access Lill Cove via a gully between the rocks from Trebarwith. There is also a path to Lill Cove from the coast path above which is available at any state of the tide.


Port William Beach

This beach is to the left of Trebarwith's main beach. It is mostly rocky except at very low water when it also has some sand. This beach is popular with experienced surfers but is not suitable for novices due to the strong currents and large rocks.

All of Trebarwith's beaches are dog friendly with dogs allowed all year round.
