Lydstep Cavern Beach 3

 
Lydstep Cavern Beach has
many Sea Caves in one area.
A Sea Cave is formed by the
forces of the sea by waves
seething at the rock face
of a Coast line, this sometimes 
produces huge Caverns.
A typical sea cave is formed
along a weakness in the rock,
like faults, different sediments
or weaker layers.
Faults in the rock sometimes produce chains of caves. Lydstep Cavern Beach is also known as “Bay of Caves”.

This beach is sensational, only to 
be viewed at it,s highest of glory
and at low tide.
Park at Lydstep Headland car park,
walk to the right and follow a small
path until you come to a National
Trust gate, descend  the steps and
follow the path down, there is a rocky
entrance, but well worth it to view the
caverns.
Smuggler,s cave consists of two entrances, and a skyfight. It is a large sea cave about 300 feet long, with an average passage cross-section of 20 feet wide and 30 feet high. The upper end opens out into a grassy doline, steps and handrails have been provided. The beach is sandy, beautiful and captivating with a few prominent features of rocks which are covered in all different kinds of shells. There is another cave called the Droch, here an entrance 20 feet wide and 50 feet high opens out into a chamber 60 feet wide and 60 feet high. 
Well worth a visit.
