Beady Pool Beach

Beady Pool

This secluded cove on the eastern side of St Agnes has a remote feel to it. Situated on Wingletang Down the beach consists of a small crescent of sand between two, low, boulder strewn headlands. Backed by heathland, the beach is fringed with hardy, salt loving plant life such as the Yellow Horned Poppy.

The name beady pool comes from the earthenware beads that could at one point be found scattered on the beach. They came from a Dutch cargo ship which was wrecked nearby in the 17th century.
