Cadgwith Cove Beach

Cadgwith Cove is an old world Cornish fishing village with two beach areas. One beach is the home of the village small fleet of crabbing boats winched up on the beach.

The second beach is the swimming beach, a small shingle beach with rocks to climb and explore. The boat beach is easily accessible whilst the swimming beach is down some steep steps.

The village had a lifeboat, starting in 1867 with a rowing boat and finishing with the Guide of Dunkirk in 1963.

A little to the south along the coast path is the Devil’s Frying Pan, a 200 foot deep hole in the cliffs formed many years ago when a cave collapsed.
