Porth Joke beach, Newquay, Cornwall
  • About

    Porth Joke is a great north-west facing narrow cove with a sandy beach, rock pools and caves. Often less busy than other local beaches but partly due to no facilities.

    Porth Joke is a hidden gem, tucked away between Crantock and Holywell Bay on the North Cornish coast near the popular town of Newquay. It’s name is derived from the Cornish word ‘Pol Lejouack’ meaning Jackdaw Cove. Porth Joke is a National Trust beach and there are two car parks within walking distance.

    There are no facilities at Porth Joke, it’s as nature intended!

    Porth Joke Beach has dog restrictions. No dogs allowed easter to October.
