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.

Well worth the struggle up and down the steps - what a beautiful little historic cove. St Levans Well and Chapel are worth a look on their own.

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

just when you think you have seen most of Cornwall's stunning beaches this is another one to visit. the beach don't confuse this with Chapel Porth near st agnes. Not one that is easily accessible.

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
