Trevaunance Cove is the main beach in St Agnes. The beach is dominated by the high cliffs to the north and there are plenty of reminders of the areas mining heritage to be seen. With its sand and shingle mix, it is especially popular with families year round with so much to explore including the old harbour and numerous caves. At low tide large areas of rocks and rock pools are revealed and it gives you the opportunity to walk to the adjacent beach of Trevallas Porth. However, if you do decide to walk around keep an eye on the tide or you will need to take the coast path back which involves a dizzyingly high climb to the top of the cliffs
Trevaunance Cove is also popular with surfers and there are also amenities at the beach including shop, pub and cafe, and dogs are also permitted on the beach (but must be kept on leads during the summer).

There are plenty of facilities on and around the beach here. Although it's a good walk to the village centre there is a good pub, a beach shop and toilets all within a minute or two's walk.
There is a small pay car park by Trevaunance Cove and another car park a short walk away up the hill. You can also park at the National Trust car park at neigbouring Trevellas Porth, however this is pretty small and access is somewhat laborious.
