Trevaunance Cove  



Trevaunance Cove is the main beach at St Agnes and is a popular family beach. A wide sheltered sandy beach that is gently shelving, is ideal for surfing, swimming and body boarding. The beach is prone to strong currents, so swimming and surfing should be undertaken in the designated areas under the supervision of the local lifeguards.


At low tide a stony and rocky area is exposed on either side of the cove, here there is a maze of caves and rock pools to explore. You can then walk to the neighbouring beach of Trevellas Porth.


The beach is still a working facility, with Fishermen still working from the cove - fishing for Lobster,
Crab & Mackerel.


Trevaunance Cove 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.
