Porthmeor Cove

Porthmeor Cove Cornish Beach Holiday

Exploring the rugged stretch of coastline between Land's End and St. Ives will reward you with Porthmeor Cove, a secluded and remote spot situated 6 miles northeast of Land's End. Accessible at all states of the tide, Porthmeor is a geologists heaven and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the unusual geological features including a exposed granite cupola. This wide and rocky beach is made up of large boulders and rockpools that are exposed as the tide drops and  challenging open water swimming opportunities can be found off the point to the right.

No lifeguards on duty.

Dog friendly.

Directions: Park at the Gurnard's Head pub and find the footpath that trickles down onto the coastal path. From here,  take a fork to the right and head down to the beach.
