Polpeor Cove

Home  >  Cornwall  >  Current Beach


A small, dark sanded beach just round from the Lizard Point, the most Southerly Point in England. Overlooking the cove is the old Lizard Point Lifeboat Station which is no longer in operation and has now become a heritage centre. Dangerous tidal currents sweep past this point and swimming is not recommended. The most Southerly Cafe is perched at the top of the cliff above the cove, ideal for a cream tea and a drink.


Head to the remote village of Lizard and continue to take the road towards Lizard Point. Park up in the National Trust carpark next to the old lighthouse and walk down the slipway and onto the beach.
