Cape Cornwall Beach
Most of the headland is owned by the National Trust. There is also a National Coastwatch look out on the seaward side. The only tourist infrastructure at present is a car park (owned by the National Trust) and a public toilet and refreshments van during the summer. The Brisons, two offshore rocks, are located approximately one mile southwest of Cape Cornwall and are the starting line of the annual swimming race ending at Priest Cove. Priest Cove (Cornish: Porth Ust, meaning St Just’s Cove) or Priest’s Cove is a small cove one mile (1.6 km) west of St Just, Cornwall, UK. The name is from the Cornish Porth Ust, the port or cove of St Just, which was shortened to Por’ Ust. The cove lies next to Cape Cornwall which was also linked to St Just, being called Kilgoodh Ust, meaning goose-back of St Just, in the Cornish language. “Priest’s” is a spelling mistake on the Ordnance Survey and there is no connection with the clergy. The cove and surrounding area is designated as part of the Aire Point To Carrick Du Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
