Polridmouth Cove    



Polridmouth Cove Beach, which is south-facing, is set in an attractive, sheltered cove to the east of Gribbin Head near and west of the popular town of Fowey. Much of the beach is covered by the sea at high tide, this divides the beach into two distinct, small beaches.


The nearest car park is around three quarters of a mile from the beach. Access to the beach from the car park is via a farmland track which is not suitable for everyone.

You pass Polridmouth Cove whilst walking the South West Coast Path, a journey which also includes Polkerris beach and Par Sands beach a little further along the coast. Along this route are stunning coastal views from Fowey to St Austell.


Polridmouth 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.
