Trevellas Porth Beach  



Tucked away just up the coast from Trevaunance Cove is Trevellas Porth. This largely rocky beach has some sand at low tide and is popular with local fishermen and snorkelers and is much quieter than its neighbouring Trevaunance Cove. Due to the  rocky nature of this beach and area, swimming is not recommended.


Trevellas Porth beach, is named after the 14th century landowners of the area, the Trevelles family, and was first recorded as a place in Cornwall in 1302 and was the site of the Trevelles family manor.


The area towards Trevellas Porth is known as "Blue Hills" due to bluish in-ground slate. Trevellas valley has been a site for tin mining for several centuries, and in 1810 the Blue Hills Sett incorporated many of the small mines.

Other points of interest also include the eighteenth century portrait artist John Opie was born at Trevellas on 16th May 1761.

Trevellas Porth beach 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.
