Benoath Cove  



Benoath Cove is a fine, sandy beach surrounded by high cliffs at Bossiney, near Tintagel. At low water the beach is joined to Bossiney Haven (Bossiney Cove) and at high tide, Benoath Beach disappears except for a few rocky ledges. The beach is accessible from Bossiney Cove at low tide (by following the sands around the headland) or via a very steep access path.
There are caves and rocky pools to explore. Swimming is possible in calm conditions as the tide comes in. At other times care is needed as the area is prone to strong rip currents - especially at low or ebbing tides. The beach is a popular surfing spot with experienced surfers.

Benoath Cove, unfortunately does not have lifeguard cover during the year, so you have to take extra precaution if swimming here. Please be sure to observe the beach safety code.
