Porthcurnick Beach

Cornwall, England
Moderate
Family Friendly

This National Trust-owned beach lies slightly to the north of Portscatho, on the Roseland peninsula. Access is via a footpath running through fields and down steep steps that zigzag down the high cliffs which back the beach. This means that Porthcurnick Beach is generally quiet.

The beach is sandy and great for rock pooling. There is a slipway for boat access, but restrictions on water skiing and jet skiing are in place. Other smaller neighbouring beaches are accessible at low tide, but take care not to be caught by the incoming tide. Wildlife enthusiasts may spot basking sharks or dolphins out at sea. A coastal footpath provides walks around St Anthony Headland to the west or the beaches at Carne and Pendower to the east.
