Enjoy the buzz and bustle of Mevagissey and then take the dog and escape to a secret beach. It's a short walk away and that puts most people off. There's a steep set of metal steps to the beach and some dogs won't like this.

Worth the excursion
The museum is at the left hand arm of the harbour. The more direct rout is up the right hand incline outside 'She Sells Seashell' shop. The coastal path sign has been replaced with a 'Annual Permit Holders Only' sign. You cannot miss the ramp, it passes under one of those typically Cornish overhanding buildings.
The ramp turns into steps with plenty of bench stops and scenic observation posts before emerging onto a grassy knoll. Walk straight ahead even though there is no footpath pointing in this direction. Children's play equipment is on the left, plus a litter bin. When the grass ends, the coastal path resumes and is marked by a dog waste only bin. Not far along the narrow path is a Kedhlow Treth sign on the right, with soil steps heading steeply downwards. These turn into the metal steps given in the original directions.
Make note of the tide times please because this shingle cove disappears at high tide.
Worth a visit. Spectacular but it is a test of endurance on the return journey.
