Portwrinkle at the western end of Whitsand Bay on the south coast, has two sand and shingle coves, an abundance rock pools in between and a charming little harbour. Once a traditional fishing village, of which its 17th century Pilchard cellar walls still stand, Portwrinkle is now considered part of the “forgotten corner of Cornwall”.
To the west of Portwrinkle’s tiny harbour lies the sandy shore of more sheltered Hoodny Cove, whilst to the east is Finnygook beach. The latter the most popular of the two beaches for experienced surfers, but both are serene, never crowded and share the same beautiful crystal-clear sea.
There's a small café behind the beach and parking.
Dogs are not allowed on the beach during July and August, between the hours of 10am and 6pm.
