We were very disappointed with this cove, it's delapedated and in a state of disrepair, the parking is enforced very aggressively, all in all a bit of a let down.

The drive or walk down to Lamorna Cove is lovely, narrow and offers beautiful views but far as the harbour goes it’s nothing special. There are much nicer and pretty places to visit along the coast like Mousehole or Porthcurno for the beach.

Just a need to visit place along the coast, nice Cafe and a better old Pub with all interesting Old British Navy articles taken from old ships. Good lunches aswell. A good place to walk up onto the cliffs and see the views.

Beautiful little cove but run or part owned by some chap who originates from up north who is very unpleasant so don’t bother far nicer places further on.

Such a lovely place. So peaceful and inspirational. Really enjoyed spending a week in a studio near the Wink. The cove itself is not as pretty as other places in the area but it is still well worth a visit.

One can't help but relax and admire the beauty of this cove and enjoying a coffee and scones from the café makes the experience something that remains in your memory forever.

Used to be a bit of a diving Mecca, but now just a wreck! The parking charges are not as draconian as some make out (when you spend £1.40 for 20 mins in Bath) however the little puppet dictator who polices the car park does...More

A slow drive down the steep single track road , through a verdant ,almost rain forest woodland is rewarded by a stunning little cove.

Love it here. The cafe sells the best crab sandwiches. Lovely views and one of our favourite places.
