A pebble beach situated in Trevellas Coombe, just north of St Agnes. At low tide it is possible to walk to the next beach, Trevaunance Cove. The rocky beach is situated in front of old mine workings and the area is known as 'Blue Hills'. Why not explore the Blue Hills Tin Streams at the back of the valley or stretch your legs by walking the quite steep coast paths west to Trevaunance or east up through Cross Coombe to Trevellas Airfield and Cligga Head.
Nearby is Perranporth Airfield. The first flights from here were in 1924 but during WWII this became an RAF base used by 21 different squadrons, all flying Spitfires. It became operational on 28 April 1941 and was decommissioned in April 1946. In 2006 it became home to the Cornish Parachute Centre and Perranporth Flying Club.
At the roundabout as you enter St Agnes village, turn right and follow the road through the village, go past the church and down Town Hill. Continue up the hill towards Perranporth (B 3285) for 300 yards, before turning left at the Wheal Kitty signpost. At the next junction, turn right and follow the road down toward Blue Hills. The turning for Trevellas is on the left, a little further up the hill.
Swimming & Surfing
Swimming is not recommended due to the unpredictable currents and absence of lifeguard cover.
