Church Cove is approximately one mile from Berepper Barns. It is a lovely beach, a stream runs through its middle to the sea. It is suitable for families and is life-guarded in the summer holidays There is a lovely cafe run by the National Trust  and there is a National Trust car park if you don't want to walk. Church Cove has the only church on a beach in Cornwall, the Church of the Storms. 

Dollar Cove is just before Church Cove and is a year round dog friendly beach. When the tide is out it is excellent for surfing, crabbing, and body boarding. It is mostly stony but sand comes and goes with the weather. You will quite often find some spectacular stone creations and towers on this beach.
