Porthcurno is one of the most westerly beaches in mainland Britain, just a few miles around the coast from Land’s End. This cove is stunning in so many respects; the near white sand which is made from ground up sea shells, the clear turquoise water and the rugged granite cliffs that form a natural amphitheatre. The cove is not only a natural gem but is overlooked by the Minack, an open air theatre which is pretty spectacular in its own right.
Pedn Vounder at the eastern end of the beach is a popular naturist spot.
