Only four miles east of Lands End, Porthcurno is one of the most strikingly beautiful beaches in England and is a south facing suntrap for a multitude of tourists.
Nestling under granite cliffs, themselves a mass of wildflowers in spring, the beach often has a crystal clear sea and golden sand. The name Porthcurno evolved from the earlier spelling 'Porth Kernow' or 'Porth Curnow' - in Cornish language 'Porth-Curnow' meant 'Port of Cornwall'.
