Hole Beach

Hole Beach beach, Cornwall

Hole Beach and its neighbouring Bagalow Beach are lesser known west-facing coves just west of Tintagel on the North coast of Cornwall, located between Dennis Point and Penhallic Point.

At the base of high slate cliffs these westerly facing beaches lie at the northerly end of Trebarwith Strand and can be reached at Spring tides and times of very low water by walking along the sand. Otherwise access is down a very narrow and steep path.

There is no safety equipment or other facilities and swimming is NOT ADVISED due to strong currents offshore.

The character of the beach can alter drastically due to its westerly aspect. Sometimes it can consist of a large amount of golden sand, at other times, especially after winter storms, the sand may only be visible at low water.

Hole Beach is a dog friendly beach and they are permitted all year round. Due to its relatively difficult access, Hole Beach is rarely busy. All the usual facilities, including toilets, are located at Trebarwith Strand or Tintagel.
