It was a fine bright day and a chance to enjoy a covering of sand at Rinsey Cove. On a low tide, the beach looked spectacular, with white waves crashing in on the new beach over the multi-coloured rocks. It’s always a pleasure to visit the wild elements at this top left hand corner of the Lizard Peninsula. Highly recommended.

It’s exciting to see a fresh new beach, on an ebb tide, like this morning at Rinsey Cove. There’s outstanding natural scenery here anyway, including the colours and texture of the rocks on the beach and the cliffs, but on this occasion the fresh sand showcased the geology. The sea is always lively on this side of Cornwall, with the waves crashing relentlessly onto the sand and rocks. Rinsey Cove is elemental, nature in the raw.

It was a bright sunny morning at Rinsey Cove, with the high tide acting against the black rock in this geological wonderland. I met fisherman Peter and another Peter, visiting Rinsey House with his family. It was good to see the house with its new roof, after watching the renovations during the last visit.

I heard from roofer Ben about his links to Rinsey Cove. The workmanship on the roof was impressive, as you can see, so here’s a mention for the craftsmen, from proprietor Henri Blight, to Scott Hocking, Mark Peters and Ben Verry – thanks for your hospitality.

As the most stunning visual and sensory experience of the manonabeach® series so far, Rinsey Cove sits in the teeth of the Atlantic breakers. There is a breathtaking array of textures and colours on the beach. Access is fairly steep and rocky near the beach, but it’s well worth it. Highly recommended, a special place.
