Portwrinkle, is on the western end of Whitsand Bay, on the south coast of Cornwall. There are two sand and shingle beaches with numerous rock pools and a small harbour. Portwrinkle is popular with families and the east beach, known as Finnygook beach, can be used by experienced surfers. There are steep paths down to both Portwrinkle beaches.

Portwinkle was traditionally a fishing village and the old 17th century walls of the pilchard cellars are still standing, although they have been incorporated into housing. Although the village has no shops, apart from the beach car park cafe, there is a shop and post office in nearby village of Crafthole.

Please note: A seasonal dog ban applies on this beach
