The Beach Guide

Porthluney Cove

  • Porthluney Beach Fog

Decent sized sandy beach which backs onto the grounds of Caerhays Castle and it's gardens. The beach is also part of the estate.
The beach is fairly sheltered and swimming is relatively safe. There is also a ban on any kind of motorised water-craft to maintain peace and quiet.
The beach here does appear in several guides (including this one) as a naturist beach. Whilst there does seem to be some evidence that it has been used by naturists there doesn't seem to currently be any clothes-free activity on the beach.
