“Open air theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Amazing place really worth visiting, even if it's a bit out of the usual tourist route. This theatre has been carved in the cliff rocks right above the Atlantic ocean. If you are lucky with the weather you can enjoy absolutely stunning views! There's a restaurant and the gift shop at the exit. The only downside is the car park - very steep with some of the narrowest spaces ever.

“Brilliant views & excellent cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We visited in september end. not the best time of year but it was absolutely stunning. Worth a visit. Will probably go again when we go to cornwall.

The cafe is excellent. Gets quite busy but quality of food is awesome. Had the best cream tea with scones there.

“Fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

This was a wonderful place to visit on a sunny day. Worth the £4 entry fee. Interesting to see the theatre even when not watching a play. We enjoyed a very nice cream tea in the café overlooking the sea. Steps leading down to Porthcurno beach. Fantastic coastal views.

“Beautiful location.”

Worth a visit. Minack Theatre snuggles into the beautiful Porthcurno. Two places to visit for the price of one!

“Must see views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

When it comes about Cornwall - this is the place you will definitely remember: the colours, the wind, the altitude, still rural setting and amazing sand beaches...if only British weather was a bit warmer I do not think you would go to any of long haul beaches. You do not need to pay to see the beach and omit the theatre. Make sure though you take something to shelter you from wind.
