Pednvounder, Porthcurno

This is a white shell sand beach washed by turquoise sea and surrounded by high granite cliffs - a place of real beauty. Access is via boat or a steep descent from the coast path. It is possible to reach the beach at very low tide but beware of fast  incoming tides. There is a naturist beach popular with Northern Europeans. The irony is that it is often called a favourite amongst broadsheets “Secret Beaches” - now not so secret. Porthcurno’s beach, to the west of it, can be accessed via the car park below the Telegraph Museum where there is a charge.
