As with many British beaches, this one has it's flaws – in this case it isn't the lack of sun or warmth, Lamorna Cove is at almost the UK's southern most point – but the lack of sand. It's mostly rock, and hard rock at that, the granite that was used to build the Embankment, but that means it's more like a swimming pool, it's really a giant rock pool, so less sand to get into your swim suit.

This spot offers something else in spades though – scenery and peace. Both Alec Guinness and George Harrison come here to ponder in the scenic quiet, nothing doing but the crash of the waves.
