There are several beaches that you can walk to from Wych Elm.
Lankidden Cove is the closest beach, this beach along with Downas Cove are only there at low tide. They are a 20-40 minute walk away.
-left out of carpark, take first right road, continue along the road until you come to a fotpath sign directing you right, follow the footpath through a large metal gate, follow the path to the next gate( you will see the sea)go through the gate and left, for Lankidden follow the coast path for about 200m then take the path down the cliff towards the sea, follow this until you come to a rope to help you on to the beach.
For Downas Cove just continue along the coast path without going down towards Lankidden, continue down towards a foot bridge at the foot of a big hill, if the tide is out , you will see the Beach.
Both of these walks are a little challenging and require correct footwear. It's well worth the trek.
