Port Gaverne in North Cornwall

Port Gaverne is a sheltered inlet which affords the visitor rock pools and caves, cliff walks and magnificent views and a gently sloping small sandy beach at low tide that becomes an excellent diving beach at high tide. Port Gaverne consists of mainly holiday homes, but a few residents still remain. There is a lovely inn just off of the beach, and watching the sea and the sunsets with a pint, cannot be beaten. Port Gaverne originally developed has a slate, limestone and coal port and in the 19th century included shipbuilding has a commercial activity. Grey slate from Delabole quarry was loaded here into very heavy sailing sea ketches which were too wide for Port Isaac but could rest on the beach, between tides with ease at Port Gaverne.  Nowadays the Port is a lot quieter regards industry but still well visited by the locals and the tourists. The fish Cellars now house the public conveniences and the enclosed yard is private, so look from outside the arch, and you will be fine. There is very limited parking space but just up the hill towards Port Isaac is a large car park that overlooks Port Gaverne and is a short walk either way into the heart of both Ports. If you are looking for something different. An excursion by boat to view the coast from another perspective is something I highly recommend. You will get to see some amazing sights and sites. The beach has no life guard but is safe enough if you pay attention. There is the possibility of small craft coming and going from the beach at certain times and Port Gaverne is used to launch boats by locals and visitors alike. The television series Doc Martin has been filmed at this location and many others including Port Isaac, Trevalga and Davidstow to name a few. Webmasters note: If you walk north along the coast path for a couple of miles you will come across a secluded cove and further still an extremely secluded cove that is best visited by boat. This cove is called Barret Zawn. At one time you could access the beach at Barret Zawn via a 250ft long tunnel, but the last time I was there the cliff had subsided and I had to crawl through the gap on my belly to reach the beach.  I now tend to use my surf ski to reach this cove.
