The Area
Porthcurno has a magnificent shell sand beach, with many rock pools for children to explore and during the summer season a lifeguard service is stationed on the beach. The cove itself sits on a coastal path which offers many routes for walking and discovering the beautiful local countryside and coast line.

The world famous Minack theatre is a short walk from the apartments and operates every weeknight and some afternoons during the season, which is from mid May to late September. For further information visit the Minack Theatre's website >>

The Porthcurno Telegraph museum is directly opposite the apartments and offers a fascinating insight into Victorian Britain and its communications with the Empire. Lots of local history to explore and there is something for everyone. visit the website >>

The village has a pub with another close by at Treen and the beach café has excellent snacks and lunches. The local post office and shop which sells newspapers and supplies are all within a few minutes walk. Once here, you should have little need for your car, taxis are readily available locally and bus services operate quite frequently in the summer months.

Situated two and a half miles westward is the stunning white sand beach of Sennen Cove, popular with surfers and sun worshippers alike.

Back eastwards six miles around the coast, the picturesque village of Mousehole can be found. A traditional Cornish fishing village which has several good restaurants, gift shops, tearooms and a cosy fisherman's pub. A little further along the coast is Newlyn and the town of Penzance, both of which contain many shops, restaurants and galleries. A few miles north of Penzance lies St Ives, the heart of the Cornish artistic community with many artist galleries and the internationally renowned Tate gallery. visit the website >>
