Travelling Corner: 5 Favourite Secret Beaches in Cornwall
I return to Cornwall frequently, most often to walk the South-West Coast Path. Whilst walking, I have discovered quite a few beautiful secret beaches. Below is a list of my favourites (and yes, I swam in the sea there, too, brrrr!).
Trebarwith Strand Beach
Quite large, big waves, popular [directions: Trebarwith Strand car park]
Small, picturesque, big waves, semi-popular [directions: 1 mile along the coast path from Port Quin or ½ mile from the National Trust car park on New Polzeath Road]
Porth Joke (Polly Joke)
Small, but long, quiet, semi-popular [directions: 1 mile along the coast path from the car park in West Pentire]
Quite large, beautiful, popular [directions: very steep walk down from Minack Theatre]
Small, idyllic with light yellow sand and light blue sea, semi-popular [directions: from Mullion Cove 20mins north on coast path]
This is my list. Do you have any favourite beach(es) in Cornwall? Please share your favourites in the comments below.
