Coverack Cornwall has a pub, cafe, two small shops, excellent fish and chips and an ice cream shop which also does take away food in the summer season and a hotel. Coverack is a quiet village and many of the facilities shut out of the summer season, the pub and shop remain open.

On entering the village you will see two car parks, I would park here if you are able to walk into Coverack as parking is very limited in the village and it is only a short walk from the car parks to the village centre. There is a small car park in the village outside the pub. Public toilets are in the centre of the village.
