Porthminster Beach reviews
Stunning beach nice cafe and seating area, beware of the seagulls though! Very safe for little ones and views out to Godrevy are beautiful. more »
White sand and turquoise water. What more can you ask for?! One of the most beautiful beaches I’ve seen in the UK. There are toilet facilities, a cafe for drinks and even a putting green for some fun. more »
Great beach with it views, but parking is a nightmare.
Nice little scenic beach, sand is quite coarse and parking is a nightmare!
