Gorran Haven 16 May 2014 023

Vault Beach at Gorran Haven may be one of the lesser known beaches in Cornwall, but it really is a hidden gem!


Parking is only a few minutes away and the local facilities are good. A decent expanse of sand when the tide is out, this is an excellent spot for families and those with younger children.


Note: there is no lifeguard cover at Gorran Haven beach.


Gorran Haven can be found by either following the road past the Lost Gardens of Heligan (long way) or by driving through Mevagissey and on past Portmellon (shorter route, although traffic through Meva can often be awkward and there are narrow lanes).
