Mullion Cove Beach

Mullion Cove is a picturesque cove and harbour, with a small pebble/sandy beach in the harbour. There is a small sandy beach at low tide below the south harbour wall, this beach is only accessible through a passage beneath the cliff.
Signs warn to keep clear of haulage winches, cables and moving boats in the harbour. Also stay off harbour walls during rough seas. The passage beneath the cliff to the beach is dark, with an uneven rocky surface and with pools of water which can be six inches deep at low tide. Risk of rock falls from the cliffs. Risk of getting cut off by high tide. See Beach Safety Guide.
The road from the car parks to the harbour takes about 5 minutes to walk and the road is sloping downwards.
Dogs are allowed all year in the harbour but on leads.
