Mousehole Beach

Whilst being one of the prettiest fishing villages in Cornwall Mousehole is not renowned for it's beaches. However, there are two beaches here - a pebbly/rocky beach with a small pool on the Newlyn side of town, in front of the Old Coastguard Hotel and a small patch of sand in the harbour.

Mousehole is a well established tourist destination and has a range of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.


There are 3 or 4 car parks in and around Moushole which are the only option given the narrowness of the streets and how busy it gets in the summer.
