Grebe Beach

A tucked-away slice of paradise hidden amongst the woodland of the Helford River, Grebe Beach is an ideal spot for a day beside the water. For a wholesome family day spent skimming stones, swimming in clear water and eating a well-prepared picnic, look no further than Grebe.

During the summertime Grebe is the best spot to see the bioluminescent plankton that thrives in the brackish water of the Helford River. As night falls the waves flash green, and the brave-hearted can swim amongst it for an unforgettable experience.

Aside from the National Trust car park at Bosveal, a ten-minute walk away from the beach, there are no facilities at Grebe Beach. An uneven path leading down makes this a less-than-ideal spot for anyone unsteady on their feet.


Mel's favourite...

“If your holiday home is in Mawnan you can walk to Grebe by footpath. Otherwise, park up in the National Trust car park at Bosloe. Through the woods and down to the crystal clear waters of the Helford. A treasured spot for a sundowner BBQ or a swim as the sun sets in the evening.” – Mel
