Lovely summer evenings spent here!

Fresh fish and chips available, ice-creams, teas, sandwiches, coffees, pubs... We also saw some wild seals!

Personally I thought this was one of the most picturesque Coves I ever been too. Chocolate box thatched cottages and sea views with small sandy beach with lots of pebbles. There was donation box for the car park. Definitely recommend to visit.

This small harbour has integrity and character and is largely unspoilt. There are walks along the nearby headlands and the carpark has an honesty box. It is in my opinion well worth a visit and has all the facilities a visitor may need, it's own quiet and resilient spirit and visually no commercial desecration. Long may that continue.

Just lovely to sit at and watch the world go by. Working harbour. Boats are right up onto the harbour, when tide is out you can walk down between them.

Like stepping back in time it is a lovely spot, with locals there every morning running their harbour and in the afternoons people sitting on the harbour wall chatting and enjoying the scene.

A beautiful place a must if you are in Cornwall watch the fishing boats coming in or going out. A lovely area to sit in the amphitheater stone seating going round the inner harbour wall.

This is still a working harbour. There are stone "seats" built into the harbour wall where visitors can relax and enjoy observing a typically Cornish fishing harbour at work.

One of my favourite places. Sit and watch people go by, the fishermen, the children play in the sea, have fish and chips or an ice cream - wonderful

Another visit by our group meandering around this end of Cornwall. Still a beautiful harbour and well worth a visit.

We stayed just outside coverack. We love the village and want to come back again. It is a lovely picturesque place that hasn't yet been spooky by the tourism you see on the north coast in place like padstow and port Isaac. There are a few nice places to eat including the Paris hotel which the bar is dog friendly.... More
