Administrative Port: Newlyn
County: Cornwall

Coverack is a coastal village and fishing port in Cornwall, England, and is located on the east side of the Lizard peninsula. Fishing forms part of the local economy in Coverack, however the area is a centre for watersports, particularly wind surfing, sailing and diving. The nearby rocks known as The Manacles have been the site of many shipwrecks and as a consequence are now a favourite diving destination.[1]
