This is Pentreath beach on the Lizard. Access from the landward side requires a hike followed by a scramble down a steep, broken path cut into the cliff.. so even in peak summer holiday season it is always deserted.. or close to. It produces a steep, dumpy wave at anything other than low water if there is any swell around which can make landing a sea kayak a somewhat damp but fun exercise.. worth it.. unless the swell is big in which case it’s probably better to put up with the crowds at nearby Kynance Cove or the beach at Lizard Point itself. Like an awful lot of Cornish beaches it has added interest in the form of a shipwreck.. In this case that of the steam trawler ‘Maud’, wrecked here in February 1912 (wreck report here) when she started to sink while under tow.
