Tregardock Beach  



Tregardock is a surf beach similar to Trebarwith strand but access is by footpath only. There are beautiful views on the walk down to the beach over Port Isaac Bay and nice wildflowers. Due to the fair walk down and tide-worn steps at the bottom it's not suitable for young children or anyone not comfortable clambering down rocks. The path at the top can get very muddy if it has rained recently.
Tregardock beach is just along the coast from Trebarwith Strand, in the direction of Port Isaac and is reached via a public footpath that crosses the coast path to reach the farm at Tregardock. There is no beach at high tide at Tregardock. As the tide goes out, several small beaches merge into a long stretch of sand. A waterfall plummets from the cliffs at the back of the beach and there are some caves within the cliffs. The largest part of the beach is on the left and this gets cut off as the tide rises.
It is guaranteed to be pretty quiet on the beach. However parking is very limited along the road at Tregardock (about 20 cars).


Trebarwith Strand Beach has lifeguards during the summer months that patrol each and everyday, from morning till dusk, so you can feel very safe if you fancy a swim. Please be sure to observe the flags, and the beach safety code.
