Nearest pub

The Halfway House Pub and Kitchen (1 mile)

This family run pub is located in the centre of the village and offers real ales and locally sourced food. With open fires to keep you snug in winter and family friendly beer garden for warmer months, this is the ideal place to visit for drinks and meals. Dogs are very welcome. Visit in summer and you might be lucky enough to join in the annual Ale, Cider and Pie Festival.

Nearest beach

Beak's Horn Beach (¾ mile)

Take the cliff path past Britain Cove and then a winding steep path to Eglarooze Beach. From there you will need to scramble over the rocks to reach the two coves of Beak's Horn Beach but take great care not to get cut off by the tide. The beach is rocky with some sand at low tide.

Nearest walk

Portwrinkle to Downderry (1 ¼ miles)

A fairly strenuous walk along the coastal path with an option of a low tide meander along Downderry beach. iwalkcornwall give further details about this walk on their website and also lots of others.

Nearest town

Portwrinkle (1 ¼ miles)

Around the Rame Peninsula from Plymouth is the cleanest bay of water you can find, bordered by a Site of Special Scientific Interest and many a view-filled walk to busy yourself with. The village itself is a collection of converted pilchard cellars dating back from pilchard-selling days, giving an insight into olde worlde Cornwall living.

Also nearby

Finnygook Beach (1 ½ miles)

Beautiful sand and pebble beach, popular with surfers and bodyboarders. Short walk from car park (get there early in summer!) and cafe nearby. Finnygook is the eastern end of Portwrinkle, which itself consists of two beaches and marks the western extremity of Whitsand Bay.

Gorgeous sandy beach just the right size for letting children run free while small enough to still keep an eye on them. Convenient car park and small cafe. Slightly off the beaten track so a great place to get away from the crowds.

Downderry Beach (1 ¾ miles)

Sand and shingle, Downderry Beach comes into its own at low tide. With lots of rock pools to explore and sheltered inlets offering private spots to sit and enjoy the sunshine, there is plenty of room for everyone. Although access to the main beach is easy, the eastern end is reached by a steep cliff path and many coves become cut off at high tide. The eastern end of Downderry Beach is a favourite amongst naturists.

wind and rain blown...but lovely

We walked and walked along here to get some "air" on the windiest wettest day of half term! We sand blasted all of our features smooth as there was a little too much air with sand! Young & old enjoyed ooing & aaaing at the beautiful pebbles and rock pools, though the kids could barely stand up straight for long! Would DEFINITELY like to return on a day with less "weather" !

Beach and food

Although staying just near Downderry we did not venture here to the last day but wished we had spent longer here - very clean and very long stretch of beach. The best evening meal we had here too at The Blue Plate - and suggest you book or you will have to be seated if room in the conservatory, it was superb - a little pricey and adults only really but really really good quality and plenty of locals eating there which speaks volumes!

Port Eliot Festival (1 ¾ miles)

Thought to be the oldest continually inhabited abode in the UK, Port Eliot has been home to families for over 1000 years. Fancy joining in? Well at Port Eliot festival you can. Opening their grounds for a fantastic weekend of music, art, fashion, nature, food and more, the owners of Port Eliot welcome you to celebrate, relax and most importantly, have fun.

The Best of Lit and Music

Part lit fest, part music fest. Port Eliot takes all the best bits of a literary festival - Q&A's with your favourite authors, showcasing work from new writers and poets – and mixes them with the vibe of a music festival. One of the highlights at last year's festival (2010) was Jarvis Cocker taking over the decks for a late night DJ session in the dance tent. There is already excitement building around this year's festival with the announcement that legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese will be curating the Paradiso Outdoor Cinema.

Blue Plate Restaurant (2 miles)

Situated in the heart of Downderry, this restaurant offers a choice of dining in the main restaurant, conservatory, private "chefs table" or the terrace for al fresco dining in summer. The food is simple and no fuss using fresh, local produce.

A thrilling experience

Gorgeous meals, good wines, very kind staff, friendly atmosphere.
We'd love to come back.

Tregonhawke Beach (4 ¼ miles)

Making up part of the three-mile long Whitsand Bay, Tregonhawke Beach is a great spot to sit and while away the hours. Access is via a series of fairly steep steps or along from neighbouring beaches. Just be careful though as although low tide reveals large tracts of sand, at high tide this is all but covered up. Popular for surfing, swimming is only advised in lifeguarded areas.

Lovely stretch of beach

You can walk for a few miles at low tide...beautiful sandy beach with rocky outcrops every so often...steep climb but a couple of options for tea along the way!

Florrie the dog

Really easy to get to along the coastal path..if you fancy a slightly easier walk head up on to the road once you have gone up the first set of steps and walk along to beach view cafe for the descent onto the beach (check the tide times) but it’s a lovely 3 mile beach and completely unspoilt. Eddies cafe is particularly good after all the walking and before you start the climb back up the steps!!

Unspoilt!

Parking is first come first served on the road at top. Not for the faint hearted or those with small children as the way up and down is very steep but once at the bottom the views are fantastic. Miles of sandy beach, well served by lifeguards within the flagged area. Cafe half way down. Not for those looking for a family beach with facilities but good for beach games, paddling and beachcombing. Go on a clear day when it's less windy.

Perfect for views far out to sea, large sandy beach well worth the climb with a welcoming cafe.
