Great Perhaver Beach With the nice weather (in the UK) I'm really missing Cornwall but can't get down there at present so I have re-posted (July 2014) a bigger version of this to remind me of how beautiful it is. A glorious sandy beach at low tide, only accessible by boat or swimming round the headland. Coming ashore, the only footprints are yours (or the sea gulls')! ... and, of course, any sea nymphs that happen to come ashore at the same time ( www.flickr.com/photos/jonathancharlesphoto/3983254869/ zoom ). I just posted www.flickr.com/photos/jonathancharlesphoto/27608428925/in/album-72157622101362916/ another shot of this beach , looking south towards Gorran Haven, taken a few years later (that sea nymph / castaway is there again)...

General

Small sandy cove just north of Gorran Haven. Access from the coast path above.

Getting There

Park in Gorran Haven near Perhaver Park Road, PL26 6JN. Walk north, joining the South West Coast Path along Cliff Road (private).

Pass Great Perhaver point (no view - there's a private house), follow the cliff path inland, and as it turns back parallel to the coast, look for the difficult path down to the beach.

Some reports say its possible to walk around the cliffs from Little Perhaver (the town beach) on a very low tide.

Description

Remote (because of the access) sandy beach. After a stretch of sand, the beach continues for a fair way north but is rocky and hard going, even at low tide.

South east facing, some cliff shade in the afternoon.
