Coverack, Lizard Peninsula

A small picturesque fishing village

Built on two sides of a spur of rock that juts out into the sea with a large crescent shaped beach in a sheltered bay as it's focal point. 

The village retains much of its original charm and atmosphere with thatched cottages surrounding the harbour, some reputed to have secret hiding places dating from the 18th century when smuggling was rife. Visitors have a choice of cafes including the old Lifeboat House, as well as the cosy village pub - The Paris, named after an American liner that ran aground in 1899.

Nearby attractions include Flambards (Helston), The National Seal Sanctuary (Gweek), Bonython Gardens (near Cury), Roskillys Farm (above Coverack) and the Lizard Lighthouse at The Most Southerly Point.
