Lundy Hole is a small sheltered cove tucked away on the North Cornish coast roughly midway between Polzeath and Pentire Head to the west and Port Isaac to the east. North facing onto Port Quin Bay, Lundy Hole is quite a small beach of sand and rocks. At low tide the beach offers more to see and do with rock pools to explore for the young ones and caves for the more adventurous.
Under the stewardship of the National Trust, the beach is quite hard to find from the nearby small car park. Overlooked by the majority of holidaymakers to North Cornwall, many visitors come across the beach almost by accident whilst walking the coast path. The area behind the beach is sheltered and relaxing in a shallow valley situated between Great Lobb's Rock and Pennywilgie Point.
The 'Hole' in question is a rock arch just west of the beach.
