Priest's Cove, Cape Cornwall, Cornwall


  • Located in St. Just, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Cape Cornwall is a headland on the west coast of The Land's End Peninsula (The Penwith Peninsula). North of Cape Cornwall is Porth Ledden. South is the rocky shoreline at Priest's Cove. Access is via the South West Coast Path and a road leading down to a collection of fishing huts and a slipway. The magnificent Carn Gloose rises to the south. The Brisons are out at sea. We've positioned Priest's Cove on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location. Browse our 'Photo Gallery' for views
  • Priest's Cove is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). A sign at the cove reads: 'Priest's Cove, Cape Cornwall. The stones on this beach are of national geographical significance and are part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest. THE REMOVAL OF THESE STONES FROM THIS BEACH IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE UNDER THE THEFT ACT 1968'.
  • When we researched and photographed the area, we walked in on the South West Coast Path via English Heritage's Ballowall Barrow - Carn Gluze and the Cot Valley. Note that there's a large car park and public toilets at Cape Cornwall. There's also parking up by Carn Gloose. These are clearly visible on Google's satellite imagery
  • Small coves in the local area include Porth Nanven and Portheras Cove. Larger beaches include the stunning Sennen Cove Beach
