Popular spots in the surrounding area.



This part of our coast is blessed with five sandy beaches, known as the string of pearls, all set within our parish boundary of St.Levan.

Two beaches, Pedn Vounder and Porthcurno are within 10 minutes walk of the campsite. Pedn Vounder just below the campsite is a tidal sandy beach surrounded by granite cliffs, best enjoyed at low water which exposes a sand bar and small lagoons. No lifeguards patrol this beach and caution must be taken not to get cut off by incoming tides. Porthcurno can be accessed at all states of the tide, is sandy and lifeguarded during the season. A dog ban is in operation between May 1st and September 30th during the hours of 8am - 7pm.

Further afield

Porthchapel: Located just west of the Minack Theatre and just below our parish church of St. Levan. About 25 minutes walk from the campsite, or parking at a very reasonably priced car park just above the church. It is a small, sandy beach, tidal with fairly good access.

Porthgwarra: Small, unspoilt fishing cove, with steep slipway and sandy beach at low tide. Used for much of the Poldark filming. Surrounding cliffs, spectacular, popular climbing spot.

Nanjizal (Mill Bay):Next bay on around the corner from Porthgwarra towards Lands End. Varying amounts of sand from year to year. Good place to view seals.

Plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from.
