Downas Cove Beach

Downas Cove is a sand and stoney cove backed by grass topped cliffs. Not much beach at high tide but as the tide goes out you get some great sand and rock pools.

This beach and some of the other nearby coves are popular for snorkelling.

No facilities only accessed from the coastal path.
