Nice place to chill, beautiful beach, the colours are amazing. There are lifeguards so it's quite safe to swim there. It would be nicer if people would be more careful with their rubbish...
Had another great afternoon at the beautiful Porthcurno. Swam in the sea, had fun on the beach and BBQ to finish. Such a sun trap was still 20C when we left at 20:00
One of the better beaches in the area. Its in a large cove so feels cosy yet has plenty of room. Life guards are on duty here in season and the beach cafe about 10 minutes walk away is run by a Canadian family and serves light food and snacks. Toilets are in the rather expensive car park at £6.40 a day which soon mounts up over a weeks holiday.
Good pleasant beach with lot of history on cooper communication and museum around to explain those history. There is a theatre on the hill with live shows. You get an amazing view from the top of the hill near theatre. Also if you walk around the left of the beach via the hill or through sea in low tide, you could enjoy a private beach kind of environment. Such a lovely place!
A lovely beach, with lifeguards during the day. This is Cornwall, and the water is not far removed from the Atlantic Ocean, so it is never going to be warm, but it was pleasant on my trip - perhaps "bracing" is the word. The beach drops in steps, so you can be in quite deep water while only a few yards from shore. The public lavatory provided by the local authority is well maintained, though the barrier to collect the 20p fee is broken. There is a touching appeal to patrons to pay the fee to defray the costs. On the day of my visit the beach cafe was doing a roaring trade
Lovely beach, fantastic views just a shame just a shame that dogs are band from 1st..
Such a beautiful beach. Seemed to be strong undercurrent when tide in. #Beautiful #turquoisesea
It's a gorgeous little cove. I visited in spring and saw sun and rain in the space of 30 mins with amazing surf smashing on the rocks. I'm going to visit on a summers day, but will arrive early... a real gem!
I never fail to be amazed by the colour of the sea here! Stunning beach. Normally quiet, visited in late February the last few years and we've always been super lucky with the weather. Free parking off season - didn't check what times that was though.
Always amazing beach. You feel like on the tropical holiday. Definitely worth to visit also during off season as you can enjoy it much more!
