Gorran Haven truly is a haven of peace and tranquility on the south coast of Cornwall, and only two miles from the bustling fishing village of Mevagissey. It’s slightly tucked out of the way (so has not been spoiled by over development), but close enough to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and not too far from the Eden Project and the historic harbour of Charlestown.
The beach is a dream, with soft sand, turquoise waters and plenty of rock pools to explore (dogs allowed on leads). The coast path has some stunning views and wildflowers and birds to spot. There is a hotel (The Llawnroc), two or three cafes including one right next to the beach, public conveniences (free!) a large car park and a village shop with a post office, hairdresser, fish and chip takeaway, a beach shop, an ancient tiny church and quaint narrow lanes to explore. A pub (The Barley Sheaf) can be found a mile away at the inland village of Gorran Churchtown.
