Porthcurno beach is a stunning spot that joins up with two others beaches at low tide to create an expanse of golden sand that runs all the way from the Minack Theatre to the Logan Rock. The clear turquoise water can be good for both swimming and surfing, although conditions are changeable and sometimes dangerous.
There is easy access from a large car park.

Porthcurno Beach Reviews
One of best I’m world

Travelled all round the world but this beach has got to be one of the best places in the world
Surprised Porthcurno isn’t higher on the list. Maybe people favour those which are closer to home but this beach physically is in my opinion the only proper beach in the UK.

Won’t be beaten in the UK. Simply the best as a Beach. Plus you are right near the Minack. Just wonderful. Keep an eye on the tide’s as you don’t want to get stuck on the rocks.
