Mousehole Beach

Mousehole is a small fishing village that has a small strip of sand within the harbour and pebble/rocky beaches on either side of the harbour along with a tidal rock swimming pool.

This is a typical Cornish fishing village with narrow lanes to explore with hidden shops, galleries and places to eat.

A car park by the harbour but the streets are narrow and get very busy in the summer. It is recommended to park at the larger car park on The Parade just outside Mousehole and then walk along the path by the tidal pool. For the more energetic free car parking is on the road going down the hill.

Dog Friendly Beach?

Mousehole Beach has dog restrictions.
Mousehole beach does not allow dogs on quays or beach at anytime.
No dogs on beach and rocks outside of the harbour between 1st July to 31st August between 10 am - 6 pm
