Just west of Mevagissey, Pothluney Cove, is a hidden treasure of beach – you’re unlikely to stumble upon it by accident. In the shadow of Caerhays Castle, it’s reached by a narrow road that’s off the beaten track.
The ample car park is adjacent to the beach and includes a beach shop that also provides some basic hot and cold food. Between the shop and the beach are the public toilets. These are amongst the most basic I’ve seen in this country – the urinal is basically a 6ft wall.
The beach is large and clean with good sand. There is easy access to the costal path, but this is not most interesting stretch.
There is still some sand at high tide – it’s an ideal all-day beach.
