Coverack, positioned on the south east side of the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, is a quaint coastal village. It still holds the old charm you would imagine an old Cornish fishing village to have.
There is a stone harbour that still provides shelter for the local fishing boats. Just above the harbour is the Old Lifeboat station which became a restaurant and fish and chip shop after it closed in 1978. The Paris Hotel is the local pub and provides a delicious and varied menu. The Paris was named after an American Passenger liner that ran aground, just off the coast in 1899.
The village, overlooking the harbour, is a cluster of slate, stone and thatch cottages of all shape, size and age and lead around to the beach. The arc shaped beach is interesting, and changes with the seasons and the tides. It is both rocky and has golden sands on the low tide, offering safe swimming and watersports.
