The National Trust owned beach of Gunwalloe sits at the base of the Lizard Peninsula. It is a pretty little cove with a good sized stretch of golden sand backed by gently sloping grassy dunes. The most notable feature of Gunwalloe beach though, is the little church tucked away at the northern end.
The tiny church of St Wynwallow, has a detached bell tower set into the solid rock of the headland,
Poldark filming location
Gunnwalloe on The Lizard relived its smugglings past when Aidan Turner and a hoard of other cast members and extras descended to film night-time ship wrecking scenes during the Poldark TV series.
