Mullion Cove

Photograph of Mullion Cove

The largest village on the Lizard with shops, inns, cafes and restaurants, craft shops and art galleries. Mullion Cove is protected by the National Trust and has a pretty working harbour, protected from the winter gales that rage across Mount's Bay by two stout sea walls. Nearby Poldhu Cove has an accessible family beach and in December 1901, on the cliffs above Poldhu, Marconi conducted his famous experiment in trans-Atlantic radio communications.

The beach at Polurrian, popular with surfers, is approached by an attractive walk along the cliffs or through a valley, and is well worth the effort.
