Visit Porthgwarra Beach

Porthgwarra Beach is a picturesque and secluded cove, with a traditional fishing heritage. There is an atmospheric tunnel in the rock, leading to the slipway to the cove, where swimming is safe.

There is parking available, with a small shop selling snacks in high season, making it a good place to stop when walking along the coastal path.

Did you Know? You can visit the amazing open air clifftop Minack Theatre.

Charming holiday cottages are available, and it is a lovely spot for couples looking for a quiet romantic weekend away.

Dogs friendly between 1 October and 30 April.
