A small shingle beach in a sheltered, narrow cove with plenty of sand at low tide. Popular with families as it has plenty of rock pools. Used as a launch point for some water sports.
In the 19th century slate from Delabole quarry was loaded here into heavy sea ketches which were wide enough to rest on the beach between tides.
The beach is in the middle of the village by the car park. Port Gaverne is a quarter of a mile east of Port Isaac.
