The small east Cornish village of Portwrinkle is located adjacent to Whitsand Bay Golf Club between Downderry and the Rame Peninsula.


In fact, you have the choice of two beaches at either end of the village, as there is also a beach west of the harbour. There are rockpools aplenty here, so this could be a good spot for you and the little ones to become starfish & crab hunters for the afternoon!


You can also traverse the coastpath and maybe find your very own private little spot to relax.


Parking can be found either via Donkey Lane from the B3247 or by following Finnygook Lane from Crafthole. Parking overlooks the sea!
