Lifeguarded perfect beach with turquoise water and fine sand. Probably gets busy in peak season, so I would arrive early or late.

Beautiful beach with gorgeous turquoise water! Unfortunately, dogs are banned. I saw several families having fun when I visited on a Wednesday afternoon. I found a great space to relax in the sand where I didn't feel crowded by other parties. I could've gone back...More

This beach is absolutely gorgeous! Quite small but seriously fantastic well worth a visit. Like most of Cornwall you have to park a short walk away. But well worth it. Make sure you take plenty of drinks and food as there isn’t any kind of...More

Walked (cambered for some of it) up the footpath to Minack theatre. Wonderful views of the beach and coastline. Had lunch before going for a paddle. The beach is a lovely sandy beach.

I Live in Cornwall and I visit this beach at least 5-6 times a year, i personally rate this as #1 beach in Cornwall, if you are in Cornwall the don't miss the Porthcurno and Minack Theatre which are next to each other.....

The beach and sea beautiful, the Telegraph museum very good and the views from the Minack theatre were fantastic as was the theatre itself. Well worth the drive, but due to location and popularity visit out of season.

Down from the Minack Theatre is steep in sections. From the beach car park there is a gentle sloping path.
