Gew Graze Beach (aka Soapy Cove)

Gew Graze Beach is also known as Soapy Cove after the adjacent soapstone/soaprock mineral quarry.

The beach is stony at high tide but as the tide goes out you then have some sand interspersed with smooth rocks. Grew Graze is a classic example of a remote and beautiful Cornish cove, great to get away from everything.

No facilities at the beach with access only from the coast path after a walk from either Kynance Cove or Mullion Cove.

Gew Graze Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
