Tregardock is a stunning beach that is best accessed has the tide recedes. Renowned locally for it's superior surf and secluded location.

The approach to Tregardock is on foot, via either Trebarwith Strand and Backways cove, or via the lane that descends towards Treligga from Delabole.

The footpath passes through a lush valley, wending its way down to a cutting in the hillside that reveals stunning views of the coast to Port Isaac and beyond. From here the footpath descends steeply through a lush green valley to the cliff top, were wooden stairs allow you to climb down to the rocks and the final steps that have been hewn out of the cliff.

The beach is a sliver of golden sand that is revealed at low tide. The rock pools and craggy outcrops that are exposed to explore are teeming with little crabs, guppies and the like.

Tregardock has no facilities whatsoever.

Half tide

Treligga is a small hamlet on the edge of a disused airfield overlooking the Atlantic ocean and Backways cove. The airfield is now home to sheep and the like. The original control tower is still standing, has are the old barracks, but one is home to livestock in bad weather and the other is used for storage. There is hearsay talk of buried planes and old motor vehicles at the end of the old airfield runway, but I do know that the odd shell is still ploughed up by the farmers.

Please note that there is not really anywhere to park here and the walk to the beach is nearly a half of a mile from the road. Please be thoughtful when parking.

Follow the highlighted link to see some rare footage of Justin Hayward performing the track  Tregardock has a solo artist - Tregardock: From the "Poetry in Motion" album. The entire "Poetry in Motion" album is based on the work of the late Sir John Betjeman who now rests in peace at St Enodoc church at Daymer Bay.
