There are few things our children enjoy or have enjoyed in any conditions with us as rock-pooling.

The rock pools at Rocky Beach/Mussel Beach/David's Beach just next to Trevone Beach are fabulous and extensive at low tide. Take a bucket and see how many species you can collect, you'll be surprised, but please be careful with them and and put them back where you find them.

Explore the pools and you'll come across the "natural" swimming pool dammed into the slate shore-great for a hot day swim or crabbing.

At low tide watch and listen to the Oyster Catchers scurrying amongst the emptying pools and as the tide rises see Terns diving with relentless accuracy.
