Ayrmer Cove is a beautiful sandy beach which is situated close to Ringmore and The Journeys End Inn.
The access to the cove is limited, there is a 20 minute walk from the parking area or on the opposite side of the valley through Ringmore village and a woodland track. As there is no easy access, this prevents over crowding and as such, nature is the real attraction.
The rock pools at low tide are awash with marine life such as blennies, starfish, sea anenomes and small crabs, perfect for children to explore.
There is excellent scenery and good coastal walking east towards Challaborough Beach, Bigbury on Sea and Burgh Island.

Look out for
- Reptiles, like adders or slow worm; they like to bask in the sunshine on stones or hide in the grass. Watch where you walk.
- The hedgerows in this valley have been traditionally maintained since the 1800s and are great nesting sites for a variety of birds; including rare ones!
- Colourful rock formations
It's a fact !
The little path you walk down from the carpark to get to the beach is called Smuggler's Lane. Imagine what booty used to travel the path in times gone by...
