A very small, narrow ( 0.3 m), upper intertidal rift cave. It has several boulders jammed across it. It may be slightly wider inside.

Perhaps of some interest as an example of a sea-cave in an early stage of its development.

Alternate Names: None recorded.

Notes: Access: over a very rocky foreshore in bottom 2/3 of the tide from the W end of Pennan, where you can usually park. After Coral Haven.

By sea and a beach landing in Coral Haven near high tide and in low swell, then north.
