Visit Gunwalloe Church Cove

Gunwalloe Church Cove on the south Cornwall coast, is a picture postcard destination, with its sandy beach and 13th Century Castle (St Winwalloe) on the beach front.

There is a beach cafe serving snacks and ice cream, which is open during the summer months and toilets are available. This charming spot, just a couple of miles from Berepper is usually fairly quiet, but definitly worth a visit.

The nearest parking is a National Trust Car Park on the cliffs above neighbouring Dollar Cove, one of the three beaches in Gunwalloe.
