Cadgwith has two beaches separated by a promontory called “The Todden”, thought to mean laying ground in Cornish.
To the north-east is the larger beach, made mostly of shingle with a shallow slope, referred to as Cadgwith Cove, Big Beach, The Cove, Fishing Beach, or the Working Cove; all the fishermen work from this beach.
The other smaller beach on the south-west side is a mixture of sand and large boulders and is called Little Cove or Little Beach and used as the swimming beach by locals and holiday-makers.
