Porthoustock Beach

Porthoustock beach is a pebble beach surrounded by old quarries. This is not so picturesque as other Cornish coves.

The beach is popular launching beach for divers as Porthoustock’s proximity to The Manacles, a set of treacherous rocks by Manacle Point means that it has lots of shipwrecks.

Limited facilities.
