This is probably my favourite swim. It reminds me of swimming with friends socially distanced during the hard times of COVID. You simply hug the coast from Broadsands to Elberry exploring the beautiful rock formations along the way. Elberry Cove pops into view and you often come across seals here, described as labradors of the sea. They don't like being petted or chased but are very inquisitive and like to bob alongside you before disappearing. Lord Churstons bathhouse can be seen to the left of Elberry. Unfortunately, it's been sabotaged with graffiti but is a nostalgic reminder of times gone by. There are meadows of seagrass, which are the only flowering plants that grow in marine environments. They are protected and supply a rich source of food for squid and cuttlefish and other marine organisms.
