Ready Money Cove – PL23 1JH.
A small, sheltered, sandy beach, slightly shelving. It is sheltered by cliffs close to the mouth of the River Fowey Estuary and bounded, on one side, by the medieval part of the Fowey and, on the other, by St Catherine’s Castle. The beach can be covered during spring tides. Reasonably safe bathing within cove, but not in the Fowey Estuary. Find out more.
The beach is cleaned daily during high season and litter bins are available.
There are tidal rock-pools.
