Coastal Walk; Porthcurno to Pedn Vounder
Possibly the most used postcard image of Cornwall; Pedn Vounder beach. Oh so tropical and on everyones must visit list when visiting. On this occasion, we found ourselves in Porthcurno, visiting the PK Porthcurno museum, and figured we may as well pop on the path and take a look at the beach one more time!
Porthcurno beach is another incredible beach here in West Cornwall. The crystal clear and calm water, the soft finest sand and the dramatic green coastline that frames it, it’s not hard to see why. Possibly best known for being the beach below the incredible Minack Theatre, Porthcurno is easy to find and very accessible. We parked up in the Porthcurno car park, which is a good size but as expected, gets very busy so head in early to be sure of a space.
You’ll quickly find the opening to the South West Coast Path and head off to the left in search of the most perfect panoramic view.
I’ve visited Pedn Vounder twice, including this visit, but yet to actually take the journey down to the beach. It’s a scramble and understandably not for the faint hearted but I can’t give that review personally – one day I’ll get down there!
A great spot to sit and take in the view and on this occasion, the coastal path was nice and quiet so it was a very tranquil moment. To do the coastal path walk towards Pedn Vounder from the other direction, head to my post here where I walked from Treen, via Penberth Cove.
