An idyllic fishing cove and great surf beach

Buying or relocating to Porthcurno

Porthcurno was once an important place on the map. It was the centre of world telecommunication and, until recently, there was a training school for that industry to which people came from all over the world. It has arguably one of the best beaches in Cornwall. On the cliffs to the west of Porthcurno is the world famous Minack Theatre. This wonderful open air venue commands superb views across Porthcurno Bay, with its turquoise water and golden rocks, as far as The Lizard. There are many rewarding walks along the cliffs and coastal path from Porthcurno, westwards towards Porthgwarra and Land’s End; eastwards to Logan Rock and Mousehole . Beyond the headland is Penberth Cove, an unspoilt fishing cove belonging to the National Trust. The local primary would be St Levan. There is a good variety of houses in this area but they do not come up for sale that often.
