Finnygook Beach, Portwrinkle
Portwrinkle (Cornish: Porth Wikkel) lies on the South coast of Cornwall roughly halfway between Looe and Rame Head.
The village of Portwrinkle consists of two beaches. A smaller shingle beach to the west called Britain Cove and a better, far more popular sandy beach called Finnygook Beach to the east.
Finnygook is sandy above the high water mark, with rock ledges uncovered as the tide recedes. The beach is accessed along a surfaced public footpath signposted from the car park.
Swimming is best at the Harbour and around Hoodny Cove. Always swim on a rising high tide as there can be strong currents offshore at low tide, around Oldhouse Cove and Skinner’s Ball Beach in particular.
There is a 'Seasonal Dog Ban' in force at Finnygook meaning that dogs are not permitted between Easter Day and 1st October. The nearest safety equipment is located above the harbour in the village.
