Priests Cove - Cornwall

© Rich Tea and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

Priests Cove is a rocky beach just west of Cape Cornwall. Access to the (usually rough) sea is via a slippery slipway, although a man-made saltwater swimming pool, carved out of the rocks, makes the cove a popular choice for local families. There is a National Trust car park just behind the beach.
