Water Quality
  • Porthcurno Beach is a beautiful white sand southeast facing beach in the western corner of the very lovely Porthcurno Bay.

    The beach has a deep shelf into the sea at high tide that adults would find a challenge and so care must be taken with children.

    Bordered by the Minack Theatre in the cliffs to the west and Green Bay, To the east Pednvounder Beach and the famous Logan Rock.

    Facilities include car park, toilets, cafe and lifeguards in the summer.

    Porthcurno Beach has dog restrictions. Seasonal dog restrictions, check signs on the beach.

      Overall Rating:

      Perfect after a Minack visit
      Good beach and protected by the high cliffs. The sea steeps very quickly and was a problem for smaller children and we were quite nervous.
      The road access was a pain as we got stuck on narrow lanes between tractors and buses.
      Overall a great stop off when combined with a trip to Minack Theatre but not sure if I would just visit the beach.
