Once a thriving fishing cove, the beautiful Porthgwarra sits at the heart of St Aubyn Estates and boasts a peaceful existence surrounded by wildflowers and birdlife. The popular scene in series one featuring Ross taking a swim in the crystal clear water while watched from the cliff tops by Demelza was filmed here, as well the pilchard fishing scene and many others. Stop in the Porthgwarra Cove Cafe (seasonal) which refueled the cast and crew during filming.
