Porthcurno Beach

Described by some as being a paradise, Porthcurno Beach, in the far west of Cornwall, has won many best beach destinations awards, and it’s no wonder. It’s an oasis of natural beauty with gorgeous powdery white, turquoise sea and high cliffs on both sides providing shelter from the waves. The large beach is popular with families and only 3.2 miles from Britain’s most southerly landmark, Land’s End. Visit the famous Minack open theatre, which stages theatrical performances throughout the summer or go diving among the wrecked ships off Lamorna Cove.
