There are two beaches that tend to be called the generic name of Durgan. Both are small shingle and pebble beaches, one reached by a steep path (known locally as Greeb), the other with easier access from the village. Parking is at the top of the hill in a National Trust car park with an attractive 10-minute walk down to the beaches and the village of Durgan. There is a toilet for public use in the village itself, set just back from the beach.
You can access the National Trust Glendurgan gardens from the village, and pay your entrance fee when you reach the top.
Sand chairs are available for hire on rotation throughout Kerrier, please contact Kerrier District Council on 01209 614397
