Mevagissey Beach (also known as Polstreath Beach) is one of those gorgeous Cornish coves that are well worth the journey to reach them (and by that we mean there’s a bit of a walk). Although the beach can only be reached by walking along the South West Coast Path and then taking around 200 steps down to the sand, its long stretch of sand and wonderful views make it worth a visit if you can. The beach is found off the coastal path that heads to Pentewan, so you need to look out for the steps down to the beach.
There are 200 steps, so if you need to bring pushchairs or have a lot to carry this is probably not ideal, but if you can get down you’ll discover a long sand and shingle beach. Also, bear in mind that there are no facilities here. This beach is around a 15 minute walk from Mevagissey harbour and the steps mean that on the plus side it never gets too busy.
