It has a gorgeous shell and sandy beach in the corner of Porthcurno Bay. There is a large car park at the top of the valley from which a footpath slopes gently down to the beach.
Porthcurno was once well known for something other than a beautiful Cornish town, but it was from here that Marconi transmitted his first transatlantic communications. The Porthcurno Telegraph Museum documents the history of these telecommunications and is linked to the tunnels underground which was used during WW2 and was top secret.
This is a beautiful part of the county and has some fantastic beaches and coves to explore. The Minack Theatre, nearby is an outdoor theatre, featuring various performances throughout the season, and is open at other times for visitors to have a look around and visit the cafe. If you look carefully into the sea, you will spot some whales whilst you are watching a production at the Minack.
