Great spot for finding shelter from huge winter swells that are maxing out the north coast.

local from west cornwall - A good quality beachbreak on its day, especially at low tide. Can be hollow and heavy when big. Mostly a winter break.

Hairy Local - Kenneggy Sands just round from Prussia Cove is better, but needs a big swell to turn on. Turn towards the sea when you are at Rosudgeon. Then turn left at the 'private Road sign and folow through the ford and to the little car park.
