Hemmick Beach

The beach itself is quite pleasant, nice sand and good bathing.  At low tide it is quite large but at high tide there is very little beach remaining. Because of its difficult location it never gets busy.

The roads leading to the beach are extremely narrow (barely wide enough for one vehicle in places) and there are very few passing places.  If you are unsure of reversing in such narrow roads it is not adviseable to go there.

There are no facilities.

Dogs are permitted.


Follow the B3273 towards St Austell from Mevagissey turning turning left just out of the village towards Gorran Haven.  Just before Gorran Churchtown turn right onto a minor road.  At the crossroads go straight across, then take the next right.  Shortly after this there is a National Trust car park on the right.  It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach, this is quite steep and when wet becomes slippery.  There is parking at the beach for 3/4 cars only.
