Gunwalloe Church Cove is a west facing beach near Helston on the Lizard Peninsula. Its name derives from the Breton missionary saint 'Ste. Winwaloe' and is an unusual beach in that there is a church set below the low cliffs of Castle Mound at its northern end. What is even more unusual, is that the bell tower is detached from the main body of the small church standing about 3 metres away cut into the cliffside. Quite popular due to its proximity to Helston, fine NT car park and its good sandy beach. A good base from which to explore north to Dollar Cove and Halzephron and south over Carrag-a-Pilez to Poldhu Cove. Overlooked by a golf course on its eastern edge. Well worth a visit!
