Portholland Beach – For careful swimmers only
Two small beaches of grey stones and rocky outcrops make up the beaches of this village. Beaches covered at high tide. There are strong undercurrents with large breaking waves. Do not use inflatables and there is always a risk of rock falls from the cliffs so do not picnic immediately at the foot of the cliffs.
- Access – from parking adjacent to the beach
- Refreshment and toilets
