Broadagogue Cove

Broadagogue Cove beach, Cornwall

Broadagogue Cove and its neighbour Greenaway Beach are little known coves near Polzeath in North Cornwall. Situated on the coast west of Trebetherick between Daymer Bay and Polzeath, their main claim to fame are their banded purple and green slates that back the beaches.

North west facing, the coarse sand is backed by flat rock platforms and is all but covered at high tide.

Swimming is not recommended at low tide due to the risk posed by submerged rocks and offshore currents, but snorkelling can be good under the right conditions. A number of rock pools offer youngsters the chance to explore.

There are some fine walks along the coast path south towards Daymer Bay Beach and Rock or north to Polzeath, Pentireglaze or further north to Epphaven Cove and Lundy Bay.

Golfers may wish to visit the Roserrow Golf Club nearby whilst wildlife enthusiasts often report seeing dolphins offshore.

Access to the beach is via steps from the Greenaway - the low clifftop walk between Trebetherick Point and Polzeath.

Parking is best at Polzeath main car park and all the usual facilities are also found at Polzeath.

Broadagogue Cove and Greenaway Beach are dog friendly beaches.
