Smuggler’s Cove and Western Cove are sandy beaches with rocks. Good views from the coast path but no access down to the beach. At mid to low tide you can access the cove from Portreath beach either by walking around the headland, through a small tunnel or by canoe, although you need to be aware of the tides as you could be cut off.

The collapsed sea cave is known as Ralph’s Cupboard where openings in the rock were used to store contraband, hence the name Smuggler’s cove. The most famous smuggler being Ralph, hence Ralph’s Cupboard.
