Cadgwith Cove

A beautiful little slice of Cornish history; a small fleet of boats still fish from this pretty little cove.

A traditional fishing village cove

Beautiful cove, worth visiting early morning to see the local fisherman head off, they’re really friendly and happy to have a chat before they do. It’s in the heart of the village and very unspoilt. Nice for dogs as the cove next door in same village isn’t dog friendly after 10am till 6pm. Just a very traditional authentic cove

Cadgwith is the quintessential Cornish fishing village, with local fishermen still making a living there today. It's so pretty and welcoming, and there's great local food served from Cadgwith Cove Inn and The Old Cellars restaurant. There's a 'todden' that extends into the sea in the middle of the cove, with the main fishing beach on one side and a small, more family-friendly beach on the other. Anyone could easily spend a day there just mooching in the little shops, going for a dip in the sea followed by a bite to eat!

Definitely worth a visit, not necessarily a beach day although there is a small cove but for stunning views and coastal walks, watching the fishing boats and village life pass by.
