Porthcurno Beach - Cornwall

© Geoff Cooper and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

Porthcurno is a stunning beach that joins up with two others 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.
