Porthbeor Beach nestles in a quiet, secluded spot on Cornwall’s Roseland Peninsula, near the hamlet of Bohortha. It is a south east-facing sand and shingle beach, which at low tide reveals rock pools.

Because of its remoteness and difficulty of access, via a steep path from the cliff tops, Porthbeor Beach is normally very quiet. Beaches in Cornwall nearby include Towan and St Anthony Head.

St Mawes holiday cottages (7 miles by road) provide self catering holiday accommodation in the area. Holiday cottages in St Just in Roseland (6 miles), Portscatho (2½ miles) and Truro (17 miles) provide further self catering options on or near the Roseland Peninsula.

The nearest car park is at St Anthony Head, just over a mile to the south west. From St Anthony Head, Porthbeor can be reached via the South West Coast Path. There are no facilities at the beach. Dogs are permitted all year.

Important notice – Access to Porthbeor beach remains closed. The cliff face continues to slip making it unviable and unsafe to restore access. Sad news we know, but the lovely Towan beach is close by, and just a few minutes’ walk from our car parks at Porth.
