Porthcurno Beach, Porthcurno

#11 of 79 in Beaches in Cornwall
Feel instantly transported from rainy England to a tropical paradise with a visit to Porthcurno Beach. The beachfront village's deep turquoise-green lagoon exudes an exotic atmosphere. Wild pink and green flowers grow on the rolling hillside leading up to the cliffs, and soft sand covers the beach. The beach serves as a popular swimming hole at low tide, but when the tide's in the waves come crashing against the rocky shore. Nearby, you'll find a classic pub, museum, and well-known theatre. Porthcurno Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • Stunning beach. I would park down the bottom though. The steps from the theatre down there are pretty precarious. Lovely clear water and soft sand.  more »
  • Fantastic beach! One of the best in Cornwall and well worth a visit. Also close to the Minnack theatre which is also worth a visit  more »
