One of the Lizard peninsula most memorable villages, Coverack overlooks a sand and shingle bay where the sea is remarkably clear. It is one of the many Cornish villages where smuggling once supplemented the fishing industry. One local smuggler is said to have worked in league with his wife who pegged a bright red shirt to the clothes line when it was safe to come ashore with contraband.
The Paris Hotel by the harbour takes its name from an American ship which ran aground at the turn of the 20th century. Her passengers and crew, more than 700 people in all, were brought safely to shore, and the ship was eventually refloated. One of the village’s gift shops used to be a store for salt that was packed in to barrels to preserve pilchards.
