Port Gaverne

Visit Port Gaverne

Port Gaverne is an unspoilt cove just east of Port Issac, well known for its marine life, including seals, basking sharks and dolphins.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty this part of the North Cornwall coast makes a popular spot to retreat and get away from it all, perfect for nature lovers and walking the South West Coast Path.
