Stunningly blue sea you would think you were in the Caribbean. The beach is located down a steep path so not for anyone with mobility issues. Worth it if you can manage the path. Quite a steep shelved beach into the water so care is...More

We went here on a rainy windy day in September and visited the Minnack theatre and Porthcurno beach and it really is the most stunning place ive ever seen. The theatre is just beautiful and well worth a day trip out and the beach is...More

We visited a fair few beaches while in Cornwall and this was my favourite of them all. It was truly gorgeous. I posted some pics online and a friend commented that she didn't know we had gone abroad. She was genuinely surprised to hear we...More

Looking down on Porthcurno Beach, and the coast beyond, while visiting the Minack Theatre, it was easy to decide on a post-cream tea wander to burn off the calories. The steps down from the side of the theatre are steep, with a couple of other...More

We visited on a not so sunny day, beach is very clean, but very hard to reach for those who have mobility issues as beach is reached by steep cement steps

This beach is stunning. One of the best beaches in Cornwall. A bit of a walk down to the beach from car park but is worth it. This place is amazing. A must visit.

We are staying in a dog friendly cottage/flat in Mousehole (pronounced Mouzel!) it's called Fisherman's Haven and owned by Andrew and Diana Hilton. Of course our dogs are two small breeds and very well behaved!
