Harbour Cove, also known as Tregirls beach, is a wide sandy beach looking out over the Camel Estuary. The cove is backed by sand dunes making it very sheltered against the wind. At low tide this sandy beach stretches over a mile and a half. From here you can see a large sandbar known as The Doom Bar. A Cornish folklore legend relates that a mermaid created the bar as a dying curse on the harbour after she was shot by a local man. The Doom Bar has given its name to the flagship ale from the local Sharp’s Brewery.
