Porthcurno

Description

The whitest sandy beach in Cornwall – great for sunbathing and swimming.  The beach is a bit of a hike from the car park through sand dunes and the first 50 metres of the beach are very steep – once you get there though, it’s well worth it.  There is a large expanse of sand, even at high tide.

The west, the cliff, is home to the Minack Theatre – worth  visit but in my opinion, a bit of an eyesore.

Next to the car park is the Telegraph Museum  - the main part is cut into the rock face and there is a staircase that takes you to a hidden position high up on the cliff with some commanding views.
