Beautiful Beach
Aug 2020 • Family
We found this beach purely by accident walking to the Minnack Theatre. Lovely little cove and sea beautiful blue colour. Access down to it is a little tricky towards the bottom would recommend trainers with good grip however once down there worth it. We got down there late afternoon about 4ish so only stayed a short while as a local advised the tide comes in quickly and can imagine a scramble to get up the slope. No toilets etc but to be honest adds to the charm and probably stops the crowds. Definitely would go back to. Photos are not edited that was the colour of the sea!

Fantastic little beach, shallow shelving ideal for children. Few minutes walk down from the church, there are some rocks to climb down at the bottom of the path but nothing strenuous.

Nice little beach

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.

Off the beaten track but well worth the visit

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 when you walk through the bushy bit you might think you were going into the jungle, but there's not many people on this beach and it's lovely and peaceful.

Enchanting beach. Shame we couldn't get down to it.

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 wonderful place to take photographs but access to the beach, scrambling down the path and over the rocks, was impossible for us pensioners. I'm told it's rarely crowded but is a favourite with families who want a quiet spot with safe bathing. From here you can continue the steep coastal path onto Porthcurno...another lovely walk. There are no toilets at the beach....but plenty of handy rocks!

Holiday visit
Jun 2015 • Couples
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 and very quiet pure bliss. Ideal place for cuttle fish searching and she'll searching.

Stunning...
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 wonderful for the kids (aged 10 & 8). We parked at St. Levan's church and walked (15mins). £2 to Park. A wonderful day not to be missed.

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 rough climb down to the beach and there are no lifeguards, but you'll have plenty of space in which to chill.

Of course, you could equally well head eastwards from Porthcurno and make your way to the Pednvounder.
