The Beaches of Cornwall: Readymoney Cove Beach
Readymoney Cove Beach
Until recently, I was under the impression that unless you came to Cornwall on a regular basis, or lived here, then you wouldn't really know much about Readymoney cover Beach. It turns out I was completely wrong and it is one of the most famous beaches in Cornwall! And with good reason, it might be small and tucked away in the heart of Fowey, but it is a spectacular beach with some incredible views.
A Beautiful Cornish Beach
Readymoney Cove Beach is a short walk from the car park, and even the walk to the beach is wonderful if you go through the woods. You can see all of the enormous houses and be incredibly jealous.
Even the Walk Down is Stunning!
Readymoney Feels Very Secluded
The beach itself is flanked by cliff tops which make it seem really secluded and private, although it won't feel like that in season as it gets really busy and you will be lucky to find space to put your towel! But looking up at the cliff tops gives a sense of both privacy and awe. You can also see the houses that directly over look the beach and if you're anything like me, wonder just how expensive they are (the answer is very)
You Don't Have to go on the Beach
If you don't want to get sand in your shoes, then you can sit on one of the benches that overlook the beach and still have a clear view of anyone that you are with. It's a really nice spot to sit and have a drink from the Readymoney Beach Shop, it is a beautiful shop, and don't be fooled by its size, it holds a lot more than you think! It used to be a public toilet believe it or not, and the lady who owns it has refurbished it and it is now a popular shop for all beach goers.
You can Bring Your Dog out of Season
There are rocks to climb, sights to see, and even a "bathing platform" which people dive from. You can even bring your dog for a large part of the year, although a seasonal dog ban is in place from Easter Sunday until 30th September.
The Beach is Worth the Walk
If you like secluded beaches with beautiful views, rock climbing and a nice walk, Readymoney Cove Beach is definitely somewhere I would recommend visiting.
