A Blue Flag, sandy surf beach.

The only beach in St Agnes Parish that still has sand at high tide. Can get very busy on hot days in the summer holidays when parking can be an issue. A nice choice of facilities and a well stocked village shop provides plenty of lunch options. At low tide, opens up into a 3 mile stretch of sand with Chapel Porth to the north and Lushingtons to the south. Lifeguarded 10am to 6pm Spring - Autumn.

This stunning walk will take you along the coastal path around St Agnes Head. En-route you will pass Wheal Coates Engine House and then climb up the Beacon for a panoramic view from St Ives to Newquay.

Nearest town

St Agnes (2 ¼ miles)

St Agnes lies in the heart of Cornwall’s mining heritage; all along the coast here you’ll see old mining engine houses rising from the cliffs. The steep and narrow streets here are lined with almost unbearably quaint, higgledy-piggledy cottages.

A beautiful town with very friendly people, great fish and chips and perfect location for accessing the nearby beach.
Especially recommend the lovely ladies in the flower shop.

Trebah Garden (13 miles)

There's subtropical lushness around every corner at these stunning gardens on the banks of the Helford River. The views from the 18th Century house across the gardens to the river are not to be missed. Wend your way through camellia groves and chusan palms, woodlands and bamboo; meander alongside pools and streams, giant-leafed gunnera and hydrangeas, to emerge onto Trebah's private beach. Perfect for a swim and a picnic in summer. Not picnic weather? Head to the Planters Cafe (winner of the 2008 Cornwall Tourism Award for Popular Restaurant/Cafe of the Year) or have a browse in the gallery and plant shops. One of Cornwall's, if not England's, finest gardens.

You won't be disappointed

What a wonderful place to lose yourself in nature discovering plants I had never seen before and some looked like they stepped out of Jurassic Park! We stayed into the evening for a fantastic Miracle Theatre production in the Amphitheatre called The Magnificent Three which was absolutely brilliant, great story, great cast and highly recommended, I will be looking out for their next production. Overall a very pleasing day with ice cream on the beach too, what more could you want!

A mini paradise

This was such a wonderful find. A complete tropical paradise hidden away down the creek. You really feel like you have disappeared to a magical world here and it's a great place to escape. Beautiful water gardens and walks through the woods, which eventually lead down to a private secluded beach. Would happily come here time and again. Lovely cafe as well and there's also a cafe on the beach.

Nice family day out

We visited the gardens on Father's Day (three generations of us!) and it was a lovely day out. It was interesting seeing all the exotic plants and following the path through the gardens to the private beach at the end where an ice cream sat on the beach is a must! The adventure play areas within the gardens were great for the kids.

A really delightful garden with much to see. Although steep in places, there are plenty of benches to rest before venturing further.

We love Trebah Gardens, they are also dog friendly, though unfortunately we did see evidence that some dog owners were not respecting the fact that clearing up is a must if this is to continue. We really enjoy walking around the gardens and always spend at least three hours doing so. Always something different to see. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Worth a visit, even on a wet day. The cream tea in the cafe was so good there is no chance it could ever be matched anywhere else. Enjoyed the shop too.

Suitable for young and old

I would recommend this garden for anyone. The walks around the garden can be taken at any pace and are endlessly fascinating for young children as well as older relatives. Even those who may not be as agile as they once were will be able to manage a good deal of the garden and there are plenty of places to stop, admire the view and rest. The staff are very helpful, always ready to discuss an unusual plant and the cafe is run by a group of very cheerful women, who provide simple but delicious food.

A beautiful place, starting with formal gardens at the top, winding down through subtropical exotica to a small beach. We once went there on a winter's day where there was snow at the top of the garden and brilliant sunshine once you went through the doorway onto the beach; my children said it was like going into Narnia!

Great breakfasts and so close to the seals

Lovely breakfasts (full Cornish is massive, honestly it'll keep you going the entire day) and surprisingly good coffee which i didn't expect. Best of it is, it's just a few minutes walk from the seal colony which we visited three times during our stay locally to see their antics at different tide times (best to see them as the tide is going out as they come ashore to rest so there's lots of activity then).

Outstanding food, drink and view

Our favourite beach cafe in Cornwall. Great food, particularly in the evenings when you can sit upstairs with a view of the beach and watch the sunset (really family friendly - they always spoil our kids). For lunch the wraps are brilliant (Mexican and vegetarian are particularly good) - we get them takeaway and eat them on the beach when body boarding.

Its become a 'tradition' for us now to have our final days breakfast at Godrevy Cafe. If you leave on a Saturday you are going to wait, but its worth it.

A unique experience!

What can one say? This was my second trip to The Minack, but my partners first. She was utterly enthralled - the production of "Mack & Mabel" was fabulous! But, let's be honest, the real star of the show is the theatre itself - absolutely tranquil setting, looking out over the sea and Porthcurno Beach while the production unfurls before you (there is something truly magical about the sound of the sea drifting in during the quiet parts of the show). Really - if you do one thing whilst in Cornwall, please make it a trip to see a play at The Minack Theatre. You surely will not regret it - and it's outstanding value for money too (less than a tenner for a seat)!

The story about how the theatre was created is fascinating.

Wonderful evening at the Minack Theatre

Wonderful evening at the Minack Theatre performance of David Copperfield. The weather on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon had been appalling - pouring rain- but we received text updates from the Minack, and in line with the BBC weather forecast the rain stopped in time for the show and later on the moon shone over the sea. The play was very well done and we all enjoyed it, even the teenage boys. We wrapped up warmly and invested in hire of the Minack padded seat cushions with backs. This year we had stone seats with backs which were much more comfortable than sitting on the grass terraces. I booked the seats online about a month in advance, and I believe they were sold out for the week's run of the play.

Mesmerising

We got tickets to see Titanic The Musical which was being performed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking. Adult tickets were a very reasonable £8 for the upper terraces, which gave a decent view. We all wrapped up warm with blankets and foam sit mats (essential) and thoroughly enjoyed the show. The backdrop of the sea and cliffs on the opposite side of the bay gave this show special significance. The real water gushing down the steps and the marine distress flare illuminating the sea made this a truly emotional and memorable experience.

Marvellous Minack

We loved the Minack: the turquoise sea as a backdrop to the action on the stage. We were there for a matinee on a hot September day in 2010. A traditional production of Gilbert and Sullivan's Mikardo by actors from Cambridge University. Many years ago, a friend had performed in this at the Minack.

Words of warning: the tiers are very steep, and the sun can be very hot: not a venue for the very elderly (who were there when we were, but a couple were overcome by heat). Recommend the canvas seat covers which make the narrow tiered seats, cut from the rock, more comfy.

Minack Theatre

Open air theatre built by Rowena Cade in the most stunning cliff top setting near Penzance at Porthcurno.
Whether you attend a performance or simply visit the site (there's the Rowena Cade visitors' centre and a cafe), you'll find the setting utterly breathtaking. I'm still in awe of the determination of Rowena Cade to create this utterly unique theatre where a great variety of imaginative performances take place. The weather is important, so it's a good idea to check the forecast before you book.

Wow is not enough

To say that it has 'wow' factor is not enough. No photograph does it justice. People walk in through the gates for the first time and their jaws hit the floor. Daytime visitors can enjoy the exhibition about Rowena Cade, the single lady who built the theatre with her own hands, and take refreshments in what must be the most spectacularly appointed coffee shop in the country. But it's even better to come on a summer evening when there is a show on. No trip to Penwith is complete without experiencing this unique and wonderful theatre.

Highs and Lows

I LOVE Chapel Porth. My favourite beach in this area of Cornwall. High tide - watch the waves crash in; low tide great long walks with caves to explore. I went there in sun, rain and sleet and couldn't have been happier. One visit there were icicles on the cave walls, sunshine and blue sky all at once.
The NT car park at the beach has a cafe which is open Fri/Sat/Sun during winter season and presumably more often in summer. Also there are loos open when cafe is running.
There is a homemade cake stall at Cameron Farm on Beacon Drive just up the road and an absolute must if you like cake! I bribed my boyfriend to go back to Chapel Porth on the way home , (even tho it meant going the wrong way!) with a promise of more cake. They also have home-made fudge which is yummy. For those of you who don't like cake and fudge {who are you people?! * apologies to diabetics*} they also sell eggs.
