Beady Pool is a sheltered little beach on the southern shores of St Agnes in the Scilly Isles. It gets its name from the small ceramic beads that could be found there at one time. The beads came from a dutch cargo ship that was wrecked nearby in the 17th century. Whilst there are undoubtedly a few beads still to be found it is more of a challenge these days.

The beach is beautifully serene spot which backs onto the heathland of Wingletang Down. It is one of the more remote spots on St Agnes but well worth the walk.
