What a huge beach! Plenty of room to play games -and build sand castles. I the length walked just in the water. very relaxing! The cafe was reasonably priced and sold wonderful ice cream. A Beach umbrella is a necessity on sunny days - which we were fortunate enough to enjoy

Didn't manage to get into the sea on this trip as time was limited, the sea was full of surfers and body boarders and still had room for more, a wonderful spot for safe surfing with really good long waves.

Called the Porthminster Beach Cafe, but feels like anything but. Although the staff are very welcoming, and say that you don't have to eat, as soon as you sit down they fill water glasses for you, hand out menus, and make you feel like you are expecting a three course dinner. The food is lovely but 'posh' and you don't feel like you could just have a cup of tea and a piece of cake after a walk on the beach.
