An excellent sandy beach, half an hour walk or short drive from Tintagel. It has excellent surfing and some good rock pools when the tide is out, and some good caves to explore. The beach is nearly a mile long at low tide but the beach is completely tidal, there is no sand left at high tide, care should be taken or you might get cut off. There is a life-guard service during the summer months, their advice is strongly recommended.

Access to the beach is over rocks and is therefore not suitable for wheelchairs.
Approaching Trebarwith via the cliff path you will pass by ‘Hole Beach’. There is a steep track down, perhaps more suited to a mountain goat, the beach is only really accessible at low tide. Quite close to this is the old cliff quarry workings which are quite spectacular, again only really accessible at low tide. There are also several mine shafts along this stretch of coast, one of which has stalagmites and stalactites. It should be emphasized that great care should be exercised when exploring anywhere along this coast.
