Church Cove
The most popular beach in Gunwalloe is Church Cove, which is the last beach out of Gunwalloe. National Trust operates the car park and owns the beach. Church Cove has the only church on a beach in Cornwall, the Church of the Storms. There is also a small café, close to the car park. Church Cove is Gunwalloe's only lifeguarded beach. Here are the tide times and surf forecast.
The next cove over from Church Cove and away from Gunwalloe is Poldhu Beach, which is popular for surfing and has a fantastic café that's open 363 days a year.

Dollar Cove

The Spanish ship San Salvador was lost in 1669, just off the beach. It included a cargo of silver dollars, giving the name to the beach, Dollar Cove.
