A narrow rocky inlet south of Treyarnon Bay and north of Porthcothan. When spices were heavily taxed, they became lucrative items for the Cornish smugglers. Pepper Cove a takes its name from the boatloads of spices that were landed there out of sight of the Revenue men.
Pepper Cove is one of three similar coves along this stretch of the coast. The other two are Warren Cove and the larger Fox Cove.
