Durgan

Durgan beach, Cornwall

Durgan is a small shingle beach found near the mouth of the Helford River on the east of the Lizard Peninsula. Situated on the northern bank of the river it lies at the southern end of the subtropical Glendurgan Gardens.

South-facing the small beach is quite picturesque and lies directly on the South West Coast Path. The nearest car park is about a quarter of a mile away. There is no safety equipment or lifeguard cover. The slipway offers a place to launch dinghies from and there are toilets at the back of the beach.

The beach offers safe swimming on a rising tide and there is plenty to see for snorkelling enthusiasts. At low tide a number of rock pools are uncovered for younger beach explorers.

Dogs are permitted on Durgan beach all year round.
