The sand is coarse and gritty at the top of the beach and finer lower down.
There are sand dunes at the top of the beach, grading into wetland.
There is vehicular access only to the “Church of Storms” on the northern side and no through-road. The eastern side is vegetated sand dune grading into the golf course.
A link to the Church Cove page on the 'Let's Talk Cornwall' website will appear here in due course.
