Duckpool Beach

Visit Duckpool Beach

Duckpool Beach is a true hidden gem along the North Cornwall coast, offering a perfect escape for those seeking a peaceful and scenic beach day out. This sand and shingle beach is in a sheltered cove, below Steeple Point in the beautiful Coombe Valley. 

Swimming is not advisable due to the strong currents, lack of lifeguards, but its great for exploring rockpools and taking in the views. The South West coast path backs the beach, ideal for long coastal walks, with stunning views of the surrounding cliffs.

There is a small car park and toilets but there are no other facilities or lifeguards on duty.
