Trebarwith Strand is a lesser known beach about 2 miles southwest of Tintagel on the North Cornwall coast. West facing, the beach is completely covered at high tide but as the tide recedes a reasonable amount of sand and flat rocks are uncovered. Access to the beach is over rocks which should be treated with care if still wet.
Trebarwith is popular with families due to its proximity to the coastal villages of Tintagel and Boscastle and also with surfers in the right conditions.
There are two car parks situated just a short walk from the beach and public toilets are close by. In season, a surf shop and café open and the cliff top Port William Inn offers refreshment and fine sea views at the end of some steep steps.
There is lifeguard cover in high season and dogs are permitted on Trebarwith Strand Beach all year round.
The rock offshore is known as Gull Rock.
