Moody blues

Down near Prawle Point, we rounded a corner on the cliff path and were stopped in our tracks. A turquoise cove glowed before us, like a picture postcard of a scene on a Greek island. This is Elender Cove, tucked behind Gammon Head and so extremely sheltered, like a lagoon. As we approached the water from the clifftop the colour faded, but then once we were in it reappeared; we were immersed in blue. A kind of blue that stretches around you; an instant mood-enhancer, as was the salty freshness of the sea. We frolicked for quite some time.

Elender Cove isn't on my OS 1:50000 map, but Gammon Head is. Is E Cove the little sandy bay at about 766357?
