Fishermans Cove Beach (aka Fishing Cove)

Fisherman’s Cove, also known as Fishing Cove, is a small east-facing sandy beach backed by cliffs and with rock pools at either end.

The smaller inaccessible cove to the North is Castle Giver Cove, also known as Smugglers Cove.

The cove is known as being a naturist beach.

To access the beach you have two choices, to park at Godrevy Head or at Hells Mouth, in both cases, they have a cafe and you have a walk along the South-West Coast path. Access to the cove is down fairly steep and often slippy steps.
