Bossiney Haven

Bossiney Haven beach, Cornwall

Bossiney Haven beach nestles below high cliffs on the North Cornwall coast near Tintagel.

The small northeast facing beach is quite sandy but is fully covered at high tide. It is sheltered by the Willapark headland. The cove has a large cave on its eastern side whilst further east lies another sandy beach at Benoath Cove.

The general area is quite popular with coast path walkers due to its proximity to Rocky Valley, Tintagel and Boscastle.

Swimming is possible with care and is best on an incoming tide. Surfing is also available to the more experienced enthusiasts. At low water rock pools will entertain younger members of your group. They may also enjoy trying to spot the rock formation known as 'Elephant Rock'.

Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round and there are toilet facilities at the top of the stairs. There is rescue equipment above the cove but no lifeguard coverage.
