    1. Anonymous Porthcurno 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.
