‘Catch the weather right and you could be on the Amalfi coast’

The Sunday Times

Open from May. All welcome.

It’s an oasis for daydreaming, stargazing and listening to the sound of the waves.

A place to relax set just above the waterline, the breezy terraces have a Juice Café with cold-pressed juices, coffee, tea and bar drinks. A simple snack lunch is served from the BBQ. It’s an oasis for daydreaming, stargazing and listening to the sound of the waves.

‘La dolce vita’

‘When Olga Polizzi dreams up a beach club, she does it her way: with easy elegance. At this breezy new spot at the Hotel Tresanton in pretty St Mawes, guests mingle on Mediterranean-style terraces – smart blue-and-white parasols; semi tropical plants – sunbathing in swimsuits or sipping cold-pressed juices. A skip across the road from the hotel, the club sits above Tavern Beach, to which it has direct access. Opening times are British-weather dependant; prepare to get cosy with a blanket. Whatever the clime, it’s a lovely place to forget everything humdrum while gazing towards St Anthony’s Lighthouse, with families rockpooling below’.

Arsenio Lupin

by Yvonne Fuller

Above the rocky coastline, a series of three terraces support shaded daybeds and a bar serving drinks – while further down, almost on sea level, are high perches and tables for cocktails overlooking St Anthony’s Lighthouse. Exotic with its palms trees and cheerful stripy sun umbrellas, the beach club immediately puts you in the vacation mood. A small gate will take you down to the shoreline from which you can swim, explore rock pools on neighboring Tavern Beach, or tender out to the hotel’s beautiful yacht, Pinuccia – a 1930s Italian racing classic available for daytime charter.

‘With its striped loungers and 26-foot racing yacht, Pinuccia, adding to the illusion of a holiday on the Tuscan coast, Tresanton is like the British equivalent of the Hotel II Pellicano. But would you expect any less from the celebrated Anglo-Italian hotelier and interior designer Olga Polizzi? She has sprinkled her signature stardust over this Cornish bolthole’
