  • Stayed at the Cove above for New Year, the fishing Cove is a beautiful little stop with some stunning views, don't expect a visitors centre or coffee shop, it's a working harbour. A perfect short walk...  more »

  • Hidden gem. Small fishing harbour tucked into the coast and accessible only on foot. The setting is beautiful and the harbour itself largely untouched by modern development thanks to the work of the trust which owns it. The beach can be accessed via an old tunnel through the headland which was once used to store fish and other goods. Note that drone photography here is prohibited.
  • Cove harbour isn't somewhere that you'd stumble on by accident, as it's secluded and off the beaten track. Walk through the tunnel cut through the rock and you come to a secret beach... a great mini adventure for the children!
  • One of my favourite places. Secluded harbour locked in a timewarp. Don't go unless you're fit to walk down the steep hill from the small car park.
  • Is very quietly place lovely short walk and you see beautiful place
  • Been there a few times in 1972 73 love the smugglers cave and the view was out of this world
