Bassets Cove Beach is a small sandy beach that lies along the North Cornwall coast between Portreath and Godrevy.
The beach disappears at high tide and lies at the bottom of sheer cliffs which can be quite dangerous. Care should be taken when visiting the beach as access is via descending a hazardous cliff path. Only those confident with scrambling down and back up should visit.
Bassets Cove Beach is named after the 19th Century local mine owner John Francis Basset who lived nearby at Tehidy.
