1. Porthcurno beach
Set your eyes upon Porthcurno’s caster-sugar white sands, and aquamarine waters and you may believe you’re on the sun-soaked shores of Mexico rather than England.
Nestled against towering green cliffs, the sparkling pale sand contrasts beautifully with the vivid blue waters. Perched on the edge of the ridge to the right is the world-renowned open-air Minack Theatre. Book a show and pack a picnic dinner and a couple of bevvies and enjoy Shakespeare with the lapping waves of the Atlantic Ocean as your backdrop.
Home to a popular campsite spot, Porthcurno is an ideal retreat to embrace nature and get away from it all. When you’re not enjoying the Porthcurno’s tranquil sands, hike along the craggy clifftops and admire the sprawling views from sky-high heights. During the Spring and Summer months, the grassy hilltops come alive with a sprinkling of vibrant wildflowers.
If you’re staying in the area overnight, amble down to the beach on a summer evening and embrace the quietness and tranquillity of it all. If you’re lucky, you’ll have the entire beach to yourself.
