The sun is well and truly out here in Cornwall and we can’t help looking ahead to the Summer! And when you think of Summer you think of beaches, barbecues, friends, laughter and the odd cold beverage! We don’t know about you, but when we go to the beach we like to be able to let the kids run about, have that BBQ and have a great time with friends and family. For this to be a success we think that we need to be looking for a quiet or secret beach, one off the beaten track where you can have most of the sandy land to yourself!


We have put together a small list of beaches in Cornwall that secret and the ones that are worth a visit! Please be sure to add your secret beach to the blog!


Chapel Porth, near St Agnes.

Chapel Porth, near St Agnes. Not as frequented as some of the beaches around but a great beach to take the family. You have a well placed car park to the rear of the beach which also homes a little food outlet. The beach is really clean and is quite often quiet. You are able to walk the coast path from Chapel Porth, but be aware that the path out is very steep! We have been known to grab a Pizza from the The Cornish Pizza Company and sit on the rocks and watch the waves!


Porth Joke Beach - Near Newquay, Mid Cornwall

Porth Joke, Near Newquay. This beach is often overlooked as it near the popular beaches of Newquay. That said, make no mistake that this beach is worth a visit! You wont find the crowds like you will on Crantock or Fistral, but what you will find is a clean beach with crystal waters! You will find that the beach is cocooned by lush green and the sand is soft and deep! Access this beach by parking your car at West Pentire and walking along the footpath for around a mile. Pedn Vounder

Pedn Vounder, Treen. Although not hidden, this is a fantastic beach for swimming! In the Summer shallow lagoons form which are heated by the sun – making it perfect for a swim or a paddle with the kids! However, its a bit of a tricky descent from the cliff top so be careful! The other way around is a walk round from neighbouring Porthcurno, but be aware that the tide does come in and cut you off – so the cliff ascent wont become a choice, more of a necessity! You may also want to take a look at Logan’s Rock whilst you are there, an 80 tonne rock that can be rocked by a single person!




These are three of our favourite beaches that we think you should take a look at this Summer! Get off the beaten track and see what Cornwall has to offer!
