Tintagel to Trebarwith Strand
Lower Penhallic Point to Trebarwith Strand from the coast path
Images taken on the South West Coast Path from Lower Penhallic Point to Trebarwith Strand, near Tintagel. On the way it passes through Lanterdan Quarry, which is owned by the National Trust. This stretch of coastline is lovely for wildflowers, such as Thrift (Sea Pinks), Kidney Vetch, Sea Campion, Bird's-foot Trefoil and Ox-eye Daisies, in May and June.
Trebarwith Strand beach
This beach is completely submerged at high tide or when there's an on-shore wind etc. The tide comes in surprisingly quickly and vigorously here and it is extremely easy to get cut off. On a number of occasions I've been standing on dry sand near the entrance to the beach, only to suddenly find myself in water a foot or so deep.
