Completely fictitious beach located on the Mediterranean coast of Cornwall!
"Situated in north Cornwall, Porthemmet is the largest beach in the county. Due to an influx from the Gulf Stream, Porthemmet has very warm waters and looks more like a tropical paradise than a beach in the UK"
The name is derived from the Cornish words porth and emmet and translates as porth of the emmet!

Best beach bar none. Always sunny and warm, never rains and the welcome is to die for, as is the surf. Never any wind either. Very easy to find, the directions and maps are great. Love the fact that nudists are welcome, so educational for the children.
Do not miss this beach!

Have had some of the best catches here from Cod, Turbot and Tope.
Fish low tide in use blow lug
Perfect for visitors, free Kelly’s ice cream all day, great for kids and dogs
Simply the best
I’ve never heard anyone complaining about litter on the beach.
