Porthcothan is a small village in North Cornwall. This oasis of natural beauty is ideal for walking and camping with the family and dog.
A car park and toilets ad a shop close by make for easy access to the beach.

Being a part of the "seven bays for seven days" Porthcothan is very close to Conststine, Trevone and Treyarnon with many stunning beaches close by.
There is a small stream running across the fine golden sand along with sand dunes, rock pools and craggy headland it becomes a real adventure when poking around all these nook and crannies.
There is an abundance of wild life in the area from birds of prey to interesting insects, so be sure to look out for these fascinating animals as you wonder this vivid landscape.
