Cadgwith Cove

Cadgwith is one of those Cornish fishing villages that time seems to have passed by. The beach is still very much the centre of the village with a small fleet of crabbing boats winched up on the beach in front of the boat houses. 

The small shingle beach is located at the end of the little valley that accommodates the village. There is also a smaller, less accessible beach adjoining. 

 A little further south along the coast path is the Devil's Frying Pan, a 200 foot deep hole in the cliffs formed many years ago when a cave collapsed.

There is some good diving to be had with several well known shipwrecks located nearby.
