Bessy's Cove, Cornwall


  • Located in Prussia Cove, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Bessy's Cove is a rock and sand beach in the stretch of coastline known as Prussia Cove. Whilst you can walk in on the South West Coast Path, when we researched and photographed the area, we wandered down to Bessy's Cove on the steep track that runs from the cluster of houses and cottages down to the back of the beach. On that trip, we left Bessy's Cove using the track that climbs the cliff west of the beach. This track leads to Prussia Cove Fisherman's Hut
  • Note that King's Cove is just east of Bessy's Cove. It's a private beach used by those renting flats at the magnificently located Porth-en-Alls House
