Benoath Cove is a small, sandy beach that's only really there when the tide is low at which time it joins up with neighbouring Bossiney Haven. As the tide comes in the beach all but disappears leaving just a few rocky ledges to perch on.
Backed by high, sloping grass-covered cliffs the beach at Benoath is generally fairly sheltered. Whilst the lack of facilities mean it might not be everybody's idea of the perfect family beach kids will find plenty to do.
There are plenty of low tide rockpools and even a couple of small caves to explore.
Swimming here is generally not recommended; there is no lifeguard service and there can often be strong rip currents.
Access to the beach is via a set of steep steps cut into the cliffside - it is actually easier to walk around from Bossiney when the tide is low.
