One of only two capes in the UK, Cape Cornwall is a distinctive headland which juts out into the ocean where two great bodies of water meet. The popular rocky beach at Priest Cove has a small, man-made tidal pool. Priest’s Cove looks out towards the Brisons, two offshore rocks located one mile southwest of Cape Cornwall, where an annual swim from the Brisons to Priest’s Cove takes place. Pottery found on the Cape have been dated to the Late Bronze Age, and the presence of a cliff castle at nearby Kenidjack may indicate that the area was important in the Iron Age.
