Mullion Cove is a picturesque, small Victorian harbour situated on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. Owned by the National Trust, this charming location is perfect for a day trip, whether to relax or to take a stroll along the spectacular coastline to admire the beautiful scenery. A few boats can still be seen working from this quaint harbour.
At low tide, there is a small beach, although it can be a bit pebbly. However, the beach is a perfect spot to relax and watch the boats go by. Moreover, Mullion Cove is an ideal place for exploring the local wildlife. There are plenty of lovely coastal paths to follow and you can observe an array of wildlife along the way. You may be lucky to see seals and dolphins in the sea and there are a variety of birds to look out for.
Walking along the coast path, visitors can look back and get amazing views of the harbour. The view of Mullion Island, located a few hundred metres off the coast, is particularly stunning. The island is an important breeding ground for various birds, including cormorants, gulls and oystercatchers.
