About the location


St Keverne 2m. Porthoustock 1.5m. Coverack 5m

is a small fishing village on the east coast of The Lizard peninsula to the south of the Helford River, in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. Along the coast, to the north, is Gillan Creek and the Helford River, and to the south is the village of Porthoustock, and offshore The Manacles, a great hazard to shipping and a popular diving site for shipwrecks. The South West Coast Path passes through Porthallow which lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, especially renowned for it's geology and plants. One road runs through the village, and there is a post office and public house, the Five Pilchards, named for the pilchard fishery. The beach is privately owned with access open to all.
