Porthmeor Cove is a small, sheltered cove halfway between Morvah and Zennor on the South West Coast Path. One of Cornwall's most important geological destinations, the cove is a combination of sand, pebbles and rocks. Park at Carn Galver engine houses and walk east for one and a half kilometers. Steep slopes and narrow paths lead down to the cove.
