Butter Hole Beach, Cornwall



Butter Hole beach has yellow sands and some excellent rock pillars with some good climbing routes up the cliffs.

The beach is thought to take its name from, butter = yellow sand and hole = look down on it.

Butter Hole beach is backed by cliffs with a risky steep path down or you will need to come in from the sea by boat. This area of coastline is great for walking with the South West Coast path running along the top. If you want an easy route down to sea level you will need to go over to the East side of Gunver Head at Hawkers Cove.

No facilities by the beach with the closest facilities over at Hawkers Cove.
