Millendreath is a southerly facing cove to the East of Looe.
A stepped seawall separates the valley from the beach. A small stream runs down the valley onto the beach, is culverted through the seawall and discharges onto the beach.
Landward of the seawall the valley floor is level and set to lawn to accommodate holiday chalets and car parking. There is no evidence of sand dunes.
On the western side, gabions structures support local facilities and on the eastern side a stone sea wall protects the road from active cliff erosion. There is an old breakwater and enclosed area of the beach on the eastern side.
A link to the Millendreath page on the 'Let's Talk Cornwall' website will appear here in due course.
This is a Cornwall Council led project, funded wholly by Defra.
