Coverack is a picturesque fishing village tucked away on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula, in the heart of Cornwall. Home to a stunning beach, beautiful harbour, and many local businesses, Coverack has lots of things to see and do around the area.
The South West Coast Path is waiting to be explored. You can go for a short stroll, taking a picnic to enjoy while taking in the stunning sea views which stretch along the peninsula, or do some serious hiking. There is something for everyone, so whatever you choose, you can be sure to be satisfied.
There is parking in the hostel grounds for 15 cars or seven minibuses.
Take the B3293 from Helston to the Lizard, and then Coverack/St Keverne. At Zoar garage, about 1 mile before you reach Coverack village, turn right following a signpost to the hostel. This avoids the congested village and steep hills. Follow the narrow lane and after 1 mile, turn left. Coverack and the hostel is one mile down the road, next to the Village School.
