Hidden Beaches in Cornwallby Jasmine Greenwood
In-the-know secret beaches in Cornwall
Everyone loves Cornwall for its beautiful sweeps of popular golden sands. But you don’t have to venture far off the beaten track to find West Cornwall’s hidden coves and secret beaches.
At Three Mile Beach, we’re located in the wilds of St Ives Bay. On our doorstep are tucked-away, crowd-free spots. The beaches and coves where you can enjoy a peaceful and natural experience. The nearby peninsula of West Penwith, with its rugged beauty and refreshing remoteness, has more than its share of secret beaches just waiting to be discovered by the curious and adventurous. And, lucky for you, I’m going to reveal the best.
A note to read before you go
Each of the coves I’m about to list is at least a 20-minute walk from the nearest parking place, and many are accessed by steep or hidden pathways. Plus, you should always check the tides – the best time to visit is likely to be at low tide as many of these little coves disappear underwater as the tide comes in, and you don’t want to get cut off.
