South and West to Cornwall – Part 3   6 comments

More beach fun and coastal views this time from the local beach at Treyarnon Bay.

One of the main reasons for visiting Cornwall (well for me and the Funsters anyway) is a chance to play in the big Atlantic waves. Kayaking for me, body-boarding for the Funsters. Alas a northerly wind killed the surf so we had to seek alternative enjoyment

Treyarnon is a wonderful beach and has an extra feature in the form of huge natural rock-pool perfect for swimming and jumping.

We spent a very happy hour in the sunshine (and cold wind) playing in its icy waters. TBF was in charge of the camera so you get the dubious honour of seeing photos of me for a change!

Even TJS took a swim which was unusual

We found a lovely warm , sheltered rock shelf to relax and warm up after the swim.

Another coastal walk with the tide extremely low reveals a section of stunning hidden beaches at Pepper Cove, Warren Cove and Fox Cove just by the campsite. It would take some serious and rather edgy looking cliff scrambling to access these gems.

The evening delivered another stunning sunset as we took our regular, cold stroll along the cliffs to finish the day

  1. That natural rock pool looked really good!

    Like

    • There are several of these natural pools dotted along the coast. I’d planned to visit a few more but it the weather was so unseasonably cool it wasn’t worth a journey just for a swim. This one is excellent and surprisingly quiet for Cornwall

  2. The rock pool looks wonderful!

    Like

    • Its perfect especially for the kids. Big enough for a decent swim and deep enough for some jumps off the rocks. It gets refilled twice a day by the tide so the water is always fresh. Its particularly exciting when the waves are crashing into it

  3. More great scenery – I’ve always fancied swimming in one of those large natural pools – it looks really enjoyable.

    • Several of them on this stretch of coast, plus loads of other spots where you can swim in pools on the beach at low tide. Excellent for the kids, big and small alike especially when the waves make the sea a bit scary as it can be at times
