    This little isolated cove is found just around the headland from Prussia Cove. The nearest parking is over 20 minutes walk away (if you're lucky) which helps keeps it quiet here.

    There is a reasonable sized patch of sand at  Piskies Cove when the tide is low, but this all but disappears at high tide. However, it is still a great place for swimming and sunbathing on large rocks regardless of the tide. 

    Tucked away behind the imposing headland of Cudden Point, this cove is one of the places in which John Carter, known as the "King of Prussia", used to land his smuggled goods.
