With stunning, soft sand backed by turquoise seas and surrounded by high cliffs on both sides which provides shelter, Porthcurno is an oasis of breath-taking natural beauty. Porthcurno beach is popular all year round with families and up on the cliffs is one of the world’s most spectacular theatres, the Minack. Set in sub-tropical gardens with the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop!
The Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is also worth a visit. Once the largest telegraph station in the world, it tells the fascinating story of worldwide communications from the very first global network to the modern-day web of fibre optic cables. From Porthcurno beach, you can also reach Pedn Vounder beach which is another must-visit!
For any Poldark fans, you may notice that Porthcurno was the location picked to feature as Nampara Cove.
