Porthmeor Cove is a small, sheltered cove halfway between Morvah and Zennor on the South West Coast Path.
One of Cornwall’s most important geological destinations, the cove is a combination of sand, pebbles and rocks.
Park at Carn Galver engine houses and walk east for one and a half kilometers. Steep slopes and narrow paths lead down to the cove.

Idylic escape from the crowds

Came here on August Bank Holiday Monday, and there were only a handful of other people here. Idylic location on a sunny day. Took around 40 minutes to walk from engine house parking down to the cove, but well worth it to escape the crowds.
Idyllic at low tide

Water comes up to the rocks at high tide. Photo shows cove with thick sand cover; often there are rocks exposed making bathing dangerous. Best to swim just after low water. Natural swimming pool near the point to the SW of the cove.
Beautiful and fairly secluded. One of my favourite places around here.
