Two small beaches lie close to the end of the pretty Cot Valley and dogs are allowed on both. Porth Nanven is particularly lovely. Good area for birdwatching.
There are several pretty coves between here and Cape Cornwall including Priest's Cove from where a swimming race is held to the outcrop of rocks known as The Brisons.
