Porthgwarra

Porthgwarra is a very small coastal village between Lands end and Porthcurno.   Being on the coastal path it is a popular refreshment spot for walkers, with the small café providing pasties, drinks and cakes. There is a small beach down a very steep slipway.

Along the path towards lands end, there is a coast watch tower.  Porthgwarra is very popular with local birdwatchers,  with a wide variety of seabirds and some national rarities at different times of the year.  There are stunning sea views.

To get there take the road signposted to Porthgwarra , heading from Porthcurno towards lands end,  in the village of Polgigga.  Be warned this is a very narrow road, so make sure you’re happy reversing to let traffic past. Follow the road down the hill, and just after the small shop on the right there is a pay and display car park.
