Tucked away on the Lizard peninsula and set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Coverack has retained much of its original charm. Once known as an old smugglers hide out, the village is steeped in an intriguing fishing history and a Coverack holiday will allow you discover this for yourself.
The charming seaside village in West Cornwall offers you the best of both worlds, complete tranquillity and the exhilaration of a range of water sports. Coverack is a real
gem to stumble upon and is a popular destination for fantastic activities such as windsurfing, snorkelling and kayaking. From the quiet and sheltered
harbour you can set off by boat and let the gentle waters carry you past beautiful cliff faces and hidden coves or you can gain permission to moor your own
boat here. If you’re not a water sporting professional, Coverack Windsurfing Centre offers both the hire of equipment and lessons for all abilities.
Coverack beach is a combination of sand, shingle and rock pools, perfect for families and due to its dog-friendly status; the entire family will be
welcome. The crescent shaped beach is very sheltered and therefore the conditions are perfect for both windsurfing and fishing. The South West Coast Path
surrounds the village so for walkers you’ll be able to set off with great ease and explore more of the unique Lizard peninsula. Nearby, the manacles are a
cluster of rocks which throughout history have caused many boats and ships to run aground and claimed lives. Today, they provide divers the chance to swim
through shipwrecks and discover the fascinating wildlife.
For family holidays in Cornwall, Coverack is the perfect place to stay. You can make the most of the peace and quiet of such an idyllic village and you
will be within easy reach of many top attractions as well as having the beautiful Lizard peninsula and its hidden coves, on your doorstep. Explore a little
further and make your Coverack holiday really special by visiting the well-recognised St Michael’s Mount, a beautiful little island cared for by the
National Trust. You can reach the breath-taking island either by boat or at low tide you can take the causeway from nearby Marizion.
