Below the lovely St Levan Church this is a very small beach in a sandy cove.
At the top of the beach you can also see St Levan’s well.
One footpath down is closed for safety reasons but there is another that can be used.
We have been coming to porthchapel beach now for many years and it has to be our favourite beach in Cornwall. It's not the easiest place to get to, there are a few rocks to climb down so it's quite difficult with young children, and...More
What a wonderful, clean, secluded beach nestled between high cliffs. Last year we walked across from Porthgwarra on the coastal path but this time we walked down from the car park by St Levan Church, a pretty leafy walk of about 15 mins. It's a...More
We visited this little treasure whilst on holiday last year! It has such amazing views from the top to the bottom... The tin mines gently rest upon the strap hill tops and the pebble beach until you get to the sand. Such a lovely cove...More
One of the best beaches we have ever visited. Sheltered. Beautiful. Relaxing. A bit of a climb down but well worth it. Don't visit if you want..... a) café. b) kiosk selling tat. c) anything that is unnatural. Even with the tide in it was...More
Tired of the crowds on Porthcurno Beach? Wish you had the space to throw a frisbie without treading on half-a-dozen sunbathers? Then climb up to the Minack Theatre, cross the car park and follow the coastal path westwards for less than a mile. It's a...More
Beautiful beach, very clean and safe although it is fairly difficult to get to, it requires a determined effort to get there but is well worth it. Be advised that there is nothing whatsoever there so if you want it then take it with you,...More
I've never been down to the actual beach. Apparently the way down has been improved but is still difficult for a woman of my age (almost 65) with a dicky hip. There are steps in the rocks then you have to scramble down over... More
I've never been down to the actual beach. Apparently the way down has been improved but is still difficult for a woman of my age (almost 65) with a dicky hip. There are steps in the rocks then you have to scramble down over the last of the rocks to get to the beach. I think if you are younger and more agile it wouldn't cause a problem and maybe many years ago I would've attempted it but I leave it to the youngsters now. It is a secluded beach but there are families with young children who use the beach so I dare say it's not too difficult if you wish to try. The setting of the beach is just beautiful and so clean. Probably worth the effort to get there.
