Gillan Harbour lies about half mile south of the Helford River. The stretch of coast has three small beaches with a mixture of sand and shingle.
There are good walks west along the river bank towards Manaccan or northwest to Helford Village. About half a mile east of Gillan lies the rocky Mên-aver Beach with walks available east to Lestowder Cliff leading to Nare Point.
No facilities and the beach is used by visiting boats and those walking along the coast.
We have no dog information for Gillan Harbour beach.
