Naturist / Nudist Beaches in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland

Great Perhaver - St Austell

Cornwall (south coast)


Small sandy beach. Difficult access from coast path. Just north of Gorran Haven


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.


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.
