A northwest facing beach with dark golden sand and cliffs to the north and south. At low tide the beach opens out into a wider rocky bay but at high tide it is limited to a narrow cove. It receives some shelter from swell and wind producing good surf when nearby beaches are closed. On the headland on the northeast side of Trevone Bay is another round hole (see also Stinking Cove) which is a natural hole on the cliff top resulting from the collapse of the roof of a sea cave. At high tide with an on-shore swell the hole will blow water like a whale.
On the Newquay to Padstow road (B3276) turn off to Trevone at Windmill (2 miles west of Padstow). The beach is next to the roadside car park as you near the end of the road.
