Bossiney Haven’s sandy beach lies in a small, sheltered cove between Tintagel (1 mile) and Boscastle (2 miles) on the north Cornwall coast; a breathtakingly stunning stretch of coastline with dramatic coastal views.
The area is one steeped in mythology – the dramatic cliff top castle at Tintagel is thought by some to be built on the site of the castle of King Arthur.
At low tide the neighbouring beach at Benoath Cove can be reached from Bossiney, but at high tide most of the beach is reclaimed by the sea and attention should be paid to the incoming tide.
Self catering holiday accommodation is provided in the area by holiday cottages in Tintagel, and Boscastle holiday cottages. The nearest major towns are Padstow (21 miles), Wadebridge (14 miles), Launceston (19 miles) and Bude (17 miles).
Car parking is available in a nearby lay-by. Other than public toilets there are no facilities provided. There is no lifeguard patrol. Access to the beach can be difficult and the steep steps are not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. Dogs are permitted on the beach.
