Minehousedoor Cove

Aptly named because of the mine located directly above it, this beach is mainly sand and rocks. It forms part of the Tregardock beach area with Trerubies Cove at the southerly end. With limited parking this beach is rarely crowded and offers a wide sandy area at low tide. Whilst not recommended for swimming, there are some great rock pools and dogs are allowed year round. Do watch out for the tide!

Great walk but not for the faint hearted

We had a van and be waned the parking is very limited , but well worth it.
You follow the path down to the cove, but be aware that the last part is over boulders marked in yellow arrows, at one stage we could not work out where to go but locally a surf boarder showed us the way.
The beach is lovely at low tide but you must be aware of when high tide is, so worth a visit even if the walk back up makes you puff.
