Trevone is a popular beach with both surfers and families. The main beach is sandy inlet that is actually far deeper than it is wide. To either side of this expanse of golden sand are rocky ledges which are home to some great rock pools.
However, if it's rock pools you're after try the aptly named Rocky Beach (Newtrain Bay) next door. Here you'll find not only great rock pools to explore but a big tidal pool ideal for splashing around in.
With its gently sloping sand swimming is generally safe at Trevone and RNLI lifeguards are present in the summer months. Please note there can be a strong rip current on the right side of the beach at times.
The rocks in around Trevone are of particular interest and the area is Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Of particular interest though is the blow-hole known as Round Hole; an 80ft (25m) deep hole in the cliffs formed from a collapsed cave.
The beach is located around 2 miles west of Padstow making it easy to get to from this popular town. On the minus side, with all Trevone's great features, it can get quite busy in the summer.
