Nearest pub

Driftwood Spars (50 yards)

A bit of a north coast institution with breath-taking views, guests can dine in either the restaurant or more traditional pub, complete with three bars and real fire. There are two beer gardens to enjoy in the summer, one of which is right next to the South West Coast Path, making it a handy stop off for an en route pint or bite to eat.

The modern restaurant upstairs has a got a nice light and airy feel. Whenever we've eaten here, the food has been consistently good and well-presented. I'd especially recommend the local seafood dishes. Downstairs is good for settling in for a few pints in front of the fire - the old timber beams, ship wheels, ropes and old photographs make it feel like a cosy smugglers den.

Good Live Music

Great place to see local live bands on Friday and Saturday nights all year round! Always a good atmosphere and friendly staff! Park your car in their car-park for a day at the beach and get a refund when you order food in the restaurant!

Nearest beach

Trevaunance Cove (150 yards)

St Agnes’ pride and joy, Trevaunance Cove boasts the dramatic aesthetics typical of Cornwall’s north coast. Soaring cliffs and golden sands are complemented by a labyrinth of caves and the almighty Atlantic lapping at its shores. Popular amongst families and sport-lovers alike, Trevaunance Cove is not one to forget.

Nearest walk

The Coastal Path around St Agnes Head (¾ mile)

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 (½ mile)

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.

Hidden Treasure

This delightful little restaurant is a gem, we were really warmly welcomed in by the very attentive waitress. It only seats around 25 people, which adds to its appeal for me, it's beautifully decorated in a contemporary style. We called in for lunch - and were not disappointed with the freshly made crab sandwiches we indulged in! I would definitely visit again - maybe next time for dinner, the menu sounded lovely and all the food that was brought out looked fabulous, very reasonably priced too! Be sure to make a booking as my guess is they get quite busy!

Perranporth Beach (2 ¾ miles)

Say Perranporth to anyone from Cornwall and they will immediately know where you mean. A popular family-friendly beach on the edge of Perranporth town, Perranporth Beach is a huge three-mile belt of golden sand meeting an expanse of blue sea. A hit amongst all ages, Perranporth appeals to all, from sports enthusiasts looking to hit the waves to sun-lovers ready to kick back in the sand. A natural sea pool by Chapel Rock means that everyone of all abilities can enjoy the water and lifeguards are on duty in the summer. Dogs on leads are allowed year-round and all facilities are available nearby.

Superb for the Family

This is a great beach the whole family can enjoy. Three miles of sand. Great for surfing, sandcastle building, lifeguarded swimming areas and easy access to nearby facilities including plenty of places to hire or buy a wetsuit. Can get crowded on sunny days in the summer.
On windy days the nearby Trevaunance Cove (South) or Holywell (North) can often be more sheltered.
Dogs can be walked on the beach here year round.
Nudists from Army Camp lurk at the far North End.

Minack Theatre (28 miles)

Taking pride of place on the cliffs above Porthcurno, the world-famous Minack Theatre is truly one of a kind. Hosting an array of open-air events, visitors to the theatre will be intrigued and entertained by actors and musicians performing fantastic live acts. If you can tear your gaze away from the stunning Atlantic background, that is.

Best open-air theatre ever

I came here back in the 1970's and was fascinated. I came again now and nothing has changed. Where can you say that? Unique place, great artists (we enjoyed Shakespeare), incredible atmosphere. Out of this world! But take warm clothes, it can be cold later!

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)!

Minack Theatre – Spectacular

The story about how the theatre was created is fascinating.

The views from inside the theatre and out to sea are stunning.

Once you have visited the theatre either walk down the footpath or go to the car back at The Telegraph Museum and walk down to Porthcurno Beach. What a way to spend a day.

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.

Squashbox Theatre - Craig

If Squashbox repeats in 2013 ...you must go and see it. Morning shows for children - but equally enthralling for Adults.
Craig is a fantastic performer and you get the chance to see the Minack.

But you will need to book - performances in August are usually sold out a few days in advance.

We tried to book tickets online prior to our visit, but the theatre was fully booked.

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.
Go to the Minack Theatre - you won't be disappointed

Fantastic. Super setting for The Death of Sherlock Holmes which was funny and very entertaining. Wrap up warm, even on a summer's evening, and take cushions to sit on. Plenty of opportunity in the break to wander round and explore,taking photographs, up and down the steps. We bought fish'n'chips in Sennen to eat there which were lovely rather than have the hassle of carrying a picnic round all day.

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.

The Minack Theatre

A wonderful venue. Attending at least one event is a must. Take plenty of warm clothing along with a picnic and something hot to drink because you really are exposed to the elements. Early booking is essential for many events. If you love the theatre then a visit to the Minack is not to be missed. Plenty of easy access parking.

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.
