#10 of 69 in Beaches in Cornwall
Feel instantly transported from rainy England to a tropical paradise with a visit to Porthcurno. 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 is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Porthcurno Edition.
