Guide to Cornwall's beaches

Marshland Mouth Beach

A very quiet and peaceful beach set in the Welcombe and Marshland Valleys Nature Reserve. This is very much an untouched beach consisting mainly of pebbles and rocks. However, at low tide there is some softer golden sands and plenty of rock pools to explore.
There is a beautiful freshwater stream that runs down to the beach which interestingly marks the border between North Cornwall and Devon.
Marshland Mouth is not really what could be described as a family beach; it is both remote and bathing is not generally safe. It is a good spot for dog walkers, with no restrictions throughout the year and plenty of unspoilt scenery
