Bossiney Cove

Bossiney Cove

Picturesque small cove which joins up with neighbouring Benoath cove on low tides. 

 The beach is still relatively quite compared to much of the surrounding area as people tend to completely miss it as they go from Tintagel to Boscastle although it is overlooked by a hotel and small campsite.

Also known as:

Bossiney Haven

World class beach

My first visit here today.  Deeply impressed. Perfect sand, the rocky cliffs, the uneven path down adding to the charm, a waterfall, caves with interesting purple minerals, turquoise blue water. Simply stunning. A world class beach, and I’ve travelled a lot.
