Circular walks visiting Porthcurnick beach

The beach at Porthcurnick, Cornwall

Porthcurnick is a flat, sandy beach with a stream in the centre and rock platforms either side. The beach faces southeast away from the prevailing westerly winds so is often relatively sheltered. There's a beach at all states of the tide but at high tide this is a very narrow strip.
