Guide to Cornwall's beaches

Grebe Beach

Grebe Beach

Located a short woodland walk away from the village of Durgan is the secluded Grebe beach. Access is via a fairly steep path and the beach is a little out of the way so there is rarely a crowd at Grebe.

Grebe beach is a lovely spot backed by woodland and looking out onto the stunning Helford river. There are rocks at either end of the beach with a few rock pools worth exploring.

As with most of the Helford beaches swimming is relatively safe but the absence of a lifeguard means caution is advised.
