Godrevy Cove Beach




Area

Down on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula is a rarely visited cove that even the most avid of explorers may not have heard of. The beach is technically private but can be viewed from the South West coast path. Approximately one mile east of St. Keverne and nestled between the two disused quarries at Dean Point and Porthoustock, Godrevy Cove sits adjacent to its smaller brother Leggan Cove. Godrevy Cove exhibits shingle and course dark sand that falls away gradually into the crystal clear waters that surround this amazing coastline. About a nautical mile offshore lies the Mistrel Rock, Carn Du Rocks and teh Varses, also known as The Mannacles (Men Eglos), a particularly treacherous group of rocks that many ships have fallen victim to.


Directions

This beach is private. It can be viewed by walking the South West Coast Path, parking at nearby Porthallow or Coverack. You will eventually arrive at Godrevy Cove with Leggan Cove just to the north.
