Priests Cove Beach sits in the shadow of Cape Cornwall on Cornwall’s west coast. Priests Cove is a south-facing pebble beach set in a small fishing cove. Fine Atlantic views can be enjoyed from the cliff tops above the beach.
The bulk of Priests Cove Beach is accessible only at low tide, when a small natural swimming pool and rock pools are revealed. Footpaths provide access to the top of the cliffs, where a chimney stands as a reminder of Cornwall’s mining past. The Brisons rock formations stand just off the cape.
