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.

  • One amazing place on Earth! I love it. Crystal clear sea, clean beach, beautiful cliffs. WOW! Must see this place, I would love to visit this place again and spend more time in here. Once you finish with relaxing on the beach, just go and visit Minack theater which is on the top of the cliff, beautiful view, cheap tickets.. worth it.
  • One of the finest beaches in the UK. Lovely clean sands and crashing blue water surrounded by stunning cliffs and hidden gems. The waves here can be stronger than they appear, so keep a close eye on children in the water.
  • Stunning cove and a great base to explore some of the coastal paths from.
  • Never seen such a beautiful beach
  • The most utterly perfect beach in the world. Pure sand, crystal clear water with no seaweed or rocks, just pure sand. Every time I have been there have been seals to watch, I even swam with one. On a clear day, its beautiful and great to swim. But when it is grey and the waves crash it is sublime.
