Coverack Beach

The beach is fairly rocky but a good family beach nonetheless, and can provide good conditions for anglers. The Manacles are located just off the Coverack coast, a group of dangerous rocks which have contributed to the sinking of many ships, leaving it a popular area for divers exploring shipwrecks.

There are a small selection of holiday cottages in Coverack village, and a wider selection of holiday cottages in the Lizard as a whole. The largest major town is Helston, Cornwall, which is around 10 miles away by road.

There is easy access to the beach via steps from the car park. Coverack beach is dog-friendly, but they must be kept on the lead between 1st June and 31st August. Facilities including cafs and toilets are provided in the village.

  2. Set in one of Cornwall’s most beautiful fishing villages, Coverack is a delight to visit at any time of the year. The Lifeboat House Restaurant is situated right on the harbour overlooking the cove and our rugged Cornish coastline. Our chefs have worked all over the world and use locally sourced ingredients to create a menu inspired by international cuisine. We offer the diner an excellent dining experience. Great food in an amazing location.
