Bessys Cove Beach

Bessys Cove is part of the Prussia Cove group of Coves, Bessys Cove is a picturesque cove which is mainly rocky but has small patches of white sand. Popular with families and also used for snorkelling.

While visiting also take a walk along the coast path to Piskies Cove and Cudden Point for great views.

Famous as the home of the Carters, a family of smugglers in the 18th century, one of whom was known as the King of Prussia – hence the name for the cove.

A small car park but no other facilities.
