Visit Porthoustock Beach

Porthoustock beach is a quiet pebble beach on the east coast of the Lizard peninsula in south Cornwall. A popular spot for divers heading to the numerous shipwrecks at ‘The Manacles’. There is a pier, which is good for fishing, and the clean water is great for swimming and kayaking. The area is surrounded by beautiful cliffs and long country walks.
