Porthcurno Beach is a family friendly location with lots of soft sand. There is a stream at the top of the beach which is safe for the children to have a paddle in. The beach is situated very close to the Minack Theatre and Telegraphy Museum.
Porthcurno Beach was described in the Good Beach Guide in 2014 as being a paradise. Located in the far west of Cornwall, the beach has won many awards and this is down to its fine soft white sand washed by a sea that turns turquoise in the sun and the high cliffs on both sides provide shelter to this oasis of natural beauty.
Scenes from the popular TV drama ‘Poldark’ were filmed there. One scene shows Demelza and Ross walking along Porthcurno Beach in a dream sequence on a spectacular sunny day.
The Hotel Penzance is a 4* townhouse situated in the local town of Penzance. The Hotel Penzance combines traditional elegance with modern style and comfort – and with friendly, professional service from a team committed to ensuring you have the very best stay possible.
