Mullion Cove

Mullion Cove is always worth a visit if you are down on the Lizard. The seas there can be very good for "storm watching" though hopefully not bad enough to cause damage as has happened in some storms of recent years. The village of Mullion itself lies inland from the cove and has good facilities, while the cove itself has all the attractions of a beautiful old Cornish fishing cove, now trading perhaps more in tourism than in fish - though it is good to see there are still some small boats operating out of the harbour. The National Trust keeps threatening to leave the harbour breakwaters to the ravages of nature and winter storms, but thankfully has still continued to keep up repairs when it has been necessary.
