Portwrinkle’s two beaches are located at the western-most end of Whitsand Bay in south east Cornwall. The eastern-most beach at Portwrinkle, Finnybook Beach, is the more popular of the two – a pleasant, sandy beach, popular with families and experienced surfers alike.
Portwrinkle Beach is south-facing, with limited access at high tide. The western-most, quieter beach is a shingle beach with a small harbour at its east end, and rock pools to explore at low tide.
Crafthole and Portwrinkle holiday cottages offer self catering accommodation to holiday makers. More self catering accommodation is available in Looe (10 miles from Portwrinkle by road) and Liskeard (12 miles) holiday cottages.
Access to Portwrinkle’s beaches can be difficult, down steep paths from the cliffs. Two small car parks are situated on the cliffs above the beaches. Toilets are provided, but there are no other facilities. Dogs are not permitted on the beach all year round.
