Beach at Hanover Cove, St Agnes

Beach at Hanover Cove, St Agnes

The lovely little sandy, but inaccessible, beach at Hanover Cove between St Agnes and Perranporth.

Hanover cove gets its name from a ship of that name which was wrecked here in 1763. The 100ft two-mast square rigger brigantine was on its way from Lisbon with £50 million in gold (in today's money) when she was blown onto the rocks here.
