Rinsey Head Beach

Rinsey Head Beach - Cornwall

© Bob Jones and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

There isn't much in the way of beach at Rinsey, which is dominated by the ruined engine house of Wheal Prosper. Popular with anglers, and sometimes surfers, but dangerous for swimmers.

Good walks along the cliff to Porthleven or Praa Sands.
