Porthcurno beach

Hidden UK Gems – Porthcurno

This beautiful beach is found near Lands’ End in Cornwall, one of the country’s most beautiful beaches – make sure this is on the list of beaches to visit if you are in the area!

A beautiful portion of sand that has been captured between huge, picturesque cliffs, the beach is easily accessible and has super fine and soft golden sand – no pebbles in sight. The beach is very popular with families due to the location and the clear sea. When the tide is out, it is possible to walk round to the surrounding bays to visit the other beaches, but do beware, one of the surrounding beaches is a nudist one!

Treat yourself by sitting on the sandbars that form beneath the cliff fort of Treryn Dinas, which is surrounded by stunning bright blue waters – make sure you take your camera.

If you would like to grab something to eat, we would recommend the Minack Theatre Coffee Shop – offering local delights and light meals as well as soft drinks and teas and coffees, the theatre offers access to the local gardens for when you want a change of scenery. There is a payable admission fee for the theatre at £4.50 per adult and £2.50 for 15 years and under.
