Tucked away in Trebetherick near Polzeath, Greenaways Beach is a hidden gem which is often overlooked because of neighbouring beaches like Daymer Bay and Rock beach. The little cove is only usable at lower tides and consists of coarse sand with lots of rock pools backed by low rocky cliffs. Access is via a set of steep steps down from the coast path.
Almost always quiet, Greenaways Beach is a great place to relax and take in the scenery.
