Cradle Porth

Also known as Borough Beach, Cradle Porth is a small northeast-facing beach on the east coast of Tresco, Isles of Scilly.

It lies between Rushy Point in the southeast and Cradle Point in the northwest. It seems that almost all of the southern part of the island of Tresco is surrounded by beaches: Situated just south of Cook's Porth to the northwest and Rushy Porth to the southeast, the three beaches join at low tide to make one long beach.

Backed by low dunes and some large granite boulders, it consists of fine white Scillonian sand and looks across to the islands of Teän and St. Martins.

The beach can be prone to seaweed after stormy weather but is still well worth a visit.

Interesting walks nearby include southeast over Rushy Point and Lizard Point to Pentle Bay, the Great Pool and Tresco Abbey Gardens or northwest passing the Blockhouse and Green Porth on your way to Old Grimsby and Raven's Porth.
