Lamorna Cove is a tiny picturesque cove at the end of the Lamorna valley. The very narrow road leads down to a tiny harbour which was destroyed in recent storms. There is a car park and cafe. In a sheltered part of the coast, the Cove is good for kayaking and swimming, however there are no lifeguard. This is a good point to join the south west coastal footpath. The walk is spectacular either way.
The Cove has a small quay , still used as a landing site for small fishing vessels. However, it is not very well protected, so boats have to be dragged up the slipway, during stormy conditions. The quay itself is granite based, and was shipped in from around the area. The left over granite can be seen dotted all round the Cove, in buildings or on the hillsides.
