The Beach Guide

Polurrian Cove

Polurrian Cove is located just beyond the headland to the north of the little harbour at Mullion Cove. It is definitely worth making the walk/climb up this headland to take in the view.

The beach here is quite large at low tide when a fine expanse of golden sand is revealed. The high cliffs that flank the beach provide some shelter from the breeze, although the west-facing aspect means it often comes straight off the sea.

This also means the beach picks up Atlantic swells often making for good surfing. During the summer months there is a lifeguard service - but only at weekends. So if you do fancy a dip take care or make sure it is on a weekend during the summer holidays.

There isn't really a great deal in terms of facilities at Polurrian Cove itself. However, it is still a popular spot in the summer with both locals and visitors alike.
