Lamorna Cove Beach is a sheltered cove on the Penwith peninsula in west Cornwall. The small, pebbly beach in Lamorna’s harbour is strewn with granite boulders. The most frequent visitors to the beach are walkers of the South West Coast Path and swimmers.

Though mainly a pebble and stone beach, some sand is revealed at low tide. The beach is south east facing and provides good conditions for both swimming and scuba diving. Surf rescue equipment is provided.

The nearest self catering holiday accommodation is provided by Mousehole holiday cottages (3½ miles by road from Lamorna Cove). Further afield, holiday cottages in Penzance (5½ miles), Lands End (9½ miles) and St Ives (13½ miles) also offer a range of self catering accommodation options.

Walkers along the South West Coast Path enjoy superb coastal views, though care should be taken where the path is particularly close to cliff edges and erosion has occurred. Mousehole is a 2½ mile walk along the path to the north. In the opposite direction, Porthcurno Beach is approximately a 5 mile walk, via the Tater Du Lighthouse and St Loys Beach.

Parking is available on the quay. Facilities include a caf, toilets and, a short walk uphill, a pub. Dogs are not permitted on the beach.

    Set in the far west of Cornwall only a handful of miles from Lands End moments away from the seashore, stunning coastal and inland walkways – discover the welcoming Cornish charm of The Lamorna Wink family pub and restaurant.
