Coryton's Cove

Coryton Cove

This sheltered secluded beach of soft sand and shingle provides safe bathing, although it is not patrolled by lifeguards. There are lots of rock pools to the north east and on the opposite side are small secret beaches only accessible from the sea where tunnels have been dug into the cliffs.

There have been many sightings of dolphins from the beach, which is also a popular centre for water sports. There is a shop and cafe, toilets and good access for the disabled. Dogs are banned during the summer season. Also known as Gentleman’s Cove, Coryton Cove nestles between high red cliffs. It is ideal for families and beach hut hire is available.
