Porthemmet Beach

Porthemmet Beach

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!
