Coverack

Echoes of a proud fishing industry remain in Coverack, where a cluster of nets, lobsterpots and boats lie within the protective granite arms of the harbour. There are cosy, white-washed cottages along a maze of back streets and lanes. Enjoy a pasty and a pint at the Paris Hotel, named after a liner stranded on The Manacles in 1899. The old lifeboat house and slipway are reminders of a past rich in maritime adventure. The Coverack lifeboat rescued many from the jagged Manacle rocks which claimed amongst many ships the HMS Brig Primrose in1809 with only a drummer boy surviving from120 officers and men.

Smuggling was a regular, and often necessary, way of life in these parts. And if you walk the coast path to one of the nearby coves, you’ll be treading the paths of the coastguards and preventative men. Time your visit right and you’ll catch some of Coverack’s many events.

The Coverack Singers perform in the village hall and there are many beach barbeques, an annual carnival, regatta and lifeboat day, art club exhibitions and harbour-side carolares.
