Readymoney Cove Beach is a sandy, south-east facing beach in the pretty working harbour town of Fowey. The beach is located in a small, sheltered cove overlooking Polruan, at the mouth of the Fowey Estuary. The ruins of 16th century St Catherine’s Castle can be seen on the headland above the beach. St Catherine’s Castle was built by Henry VIII and is now an English Heritage property. It was built as a defence against invasion. The Castle can be reached via the South West Coast Path. This offers stunning views and excellent walking routes around Cornwall. Experienced walkers can enjoy walking from Fowey to nearby Polridmouth and Polkerris along the cliff path.
Fowey is located in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that stretches from Par Sands to Looe, following the South Cornwall coastline. There is a ferry service, which runs from Fowey to Polruan.
Access to the beach is easy. There is a car park and toilets situated near the beach. There is no Lifeguard service and dogs are not permitted on the beach between Easter and October.
