Sometimes known as Halzephron Cove, Gunwalloe Fishing Cove Beach is separated from its neighbour, Church Cove Beach, by Pedngwinian headland. Because of the lack of facilities and the treacherous water conditions, the beach is normally very quiet. Mullion Golf Course is nearby.

Self catering holiday accommodation is available in Mullion (6½ miles by road) and Mullion Cove (8 miles) holiday cottages. Holiday cottages in Helston (5 miles), Penzance (17 miles) and Falmouth (14 miles) offer further self catering options.

There is no parking near the beach. The nearest car park is at Church Cove Beach, from where Gunwalloe Fishing Cove can be walked via the South West Coast Path. There are no facilities near the beach. Dogs are permitted all year round.
