Durgan is a small, picturesque village near the mouth of the Helford River in Cornwall boasting two south-east facing beaches. Both are shingle and pebble beaches, sitting at the foot of the subtropical Glendurgan Gardens, from where beautiful views of the Helford can be enjoyed.
The South West Coast Path provides experienced walkers with wonderful walking opportunities around most of the Cornish coastline, taking in some breath-taking sea views. From Durgan, the coast path allows access on foot to nearby beaches such as Prisk Cove and Maenporth.
Holiday cottages in Helford Passage provide a range of self catering accommodation options. Other towns and villages nearby offering holiday cottage accommodation include Falmouth (approximately 5 miles from Durgan by road) and Helston (10 miles).
A National Trust car park is situated at the top of Glendurgan Gardens, with access to the beach via the coast path. A public toilet is situated in the village, by the beach. The main beach can be accessed via the village. Access to Greeb beach is via a steep path, and as a consequence is the less popular of the two beaches.
