The Best Secret Beaches In Cornwall! A Top 5 List Of Secluded Coves & Hidden Gems Without Crowds!

We all know that Cornwall can get quite busy... Really busy in fact!

There's a lot to love about our stunning and awe inspiring county! But, being England's worst kept secret, it's safe to say that you can sometimes feel an overwhelming urge to want to escape the crowds - and we've got just the thing for when exactly that happens!

Here's a list of our top five secluded coves and the best secret beaches in Cornwall to head to when the towns are crowded and the popular beaches are swamped with people, including how to get there and what you need to know!

1) Nanjizal

Without a nearby car park, Nanjizal could be considered one of the most secluded spots in all of Cornwall! What's more, is that the untouched sands, mystical “Song of the Sea” cave and natural, narrow sea arch make it a true hidden gem! You'll just have to walk at least half an hour from Land's End if you're hoping to visit (one of the best coastal walks in Cornwall)!

Getting there: Head to Land's End following the A30 west from Penzance. Postcode TR19 7AA. Follow the coastal path south for roughly two miles, past Pordenack Point and then the path will descend down to Nanjizal!

2) Pednvounder

(edit: this one's not so secret anymore so we'll make this list a top 6 instead!)
