Porthcurno Beach – can either be accessed via the coastal path or by taking the car - there is a large
Car Park above the beach. It has beautiful golden sands and is excellent for swimming being manned by lifeguards during the
season. The beach cafe is recommended, especially for Cornish cream teas.
Porthchapel – This beach was recently voted as one of Britain's
top secret beaches. It can either be accessed from Porthgwarra via the coastal path (in the direction towards Porthcurno) in a 15 minute walk or by taking the car and parking at St Levan Church car park. However, there are
no facilities at this beach and there is a quite a steep climb down that is not recommended for the elderly. It is also wise
to check the state of the tides as the beach can be completely covered when there are spring tides, and can experience strong
currents. But what an experience when you get there!
Also voted as one of Britain's top secret beaches by the Sunday Times in 2014. It can only be accessed by foot from Porthgwarra
by following the coastal path towards Land’s End for 20 minutes, which means it never gets crowded. There are no facilities
here – however it’s excellent for exploring rock pools, caves etc at low tide. A hidden gem!
Sennen Cove – a 10 minute drive from Porthgwarra, the beach is large and sandy and ideal for surfing. There are
good facilities here including a surf school and a cafe where you can hire surfing equipment. There are two car parks in Sennen Cove which both fill up quite quickly in peak season, and a further car park at the top of the hill
