The Cornish Coast


Coverack is a small village situated here on the east coast of the Lizard. There is a beach, but it is very stoney, and when the tide is in, there isn't much left to see.

We parked in a small car park at the end of the road, for a nominal fee, payable into an honesty box - a peasant change after our visit to Cheddar. The first picture is taken on the walk from that car park towards the main beach. The roads are narrow and are lined with a variety of cottages, and shops. This picture is taken near the harbour entrance (more below).

The second picture is taken a little further on.

If the houses in the first two pictures were a little mundane, then these thatched cottages make up for it. In the second picture, we are arriving at the top of the hill that leads down to the main beach access.

Here, we are looking down the slope to the main beach access, and in the second picture, we are looking back up that hill.

Not so many roads in this one - these pictures show the harbour from various vantage points on the harbour wall.

And the final two pictures show the harbour from further afield - the left hand one shows a particularly good view of the harbour wall.
