Church cove, near Mullion, is one of the most popular sandy beaches on the west coast of The Lizard peninsular, an area of stunning scenery. The beach is set in a picturesque south west facing bay linked by the South West Coast Path to Poldhu Cove and Mullion to the south and Gunwalloe Cove to the north. Mullion Golf course extends behind the beach and the delightful Church of St Winwaloe “The Church of the Storms” sits snuggly in the sheltered northern corner overlooking the beach. Visitors should be aware that there is another Church Cove due east of Lizard village, near Lizard Point.
