Port Gaverne Cove

Due to its sheltered nature this narrow cove is very safe for children offering a small sandy beach with rock pools to explore at low tide. In a peaceful beach-front village around the headland of Port Isaac, the beach is overlooked by high cliffs on either side with amenities close to hand.

Pretty

We loved this little bay. Lovely to explore the little beaches and caves when the tide is out. Great place to hire paddle boards and kayaks. Can get very busy.

Lovely views

Port Gavern with Doyden Castle is a magic place. From here you can start your walk to Port Isaac or to Polzeath. Or just enjoy the surroundings and have a delicious sandwich from the salt pig.

Pretty and safe beach for children

We spent a lovely day on the beach at Port Gaverne - exploring rockpools at high tide and paddling in the safe shallow sandy waters at low tide. Finished off with a beach barbeque and grilled some fresh mackerel landed from a friendly fisherman's boat. Perfect.
