I deliberately came here as early in summer as possible and was greeted with a beautiful, peaceful beach in the morning. The continuing high pressure subdued the waves and there were the remains of a misty dawn. This is a stunningly attractive beach and cove, one of the finest in Cornwall, deep set and surrounded by rocks at low tide.

An early morning visit to the beach at Trevone Bay is always a treat, especially at low tide. The black rocks by the water’s edge gleamed in the ebb tide and there was a fine view across to Trevose Head lighthouse. If you take the time to study the rocks by the beach on such a low tide, you see them in their topographic context and you can imagine yourself diving amongst them, under water. This beach is one in a string of iconic North Coast of Cornwall beaches to the west of Stepper Point and the River Camel, although there are fine beaches in the other direction too.

The high pressure for this summer re-visit had attracted visitors to this beautiful beach, enjoying some leisure time under azure blue skies. The tide was coming in and the rocks on the shore glistened as each wave fell back, under the bright sun. The beach is well protected by RNLI crew, with a cabin at the top of the beach. This part of North Cornwall boasts many exquisite beaches, with Mother Ivy’s, Harlyn Bay and Constantine Bay all in close proximity. Trevone is also well placed for trips to nearby Padstow too, a great destination for visitors.

Trevone beach was predictably empty and mothballed on my off-season visit. This village has one of the highest percentages of second homes in Cornwall, but these houses are generally not let out to other visitors, as their owners are particularly affluent. I didn’t expect to find someone to talk to, so here are just two short films of a very pretty cove and beach. No facilities except July and August, when there are plenty.
