Porthbeor beach, Cornwall

One of Cornwall's lesser known beaches and otherwise known as Porth Beor, Porthbeor beach lies on the western side of the picturesque Roseland Peninsula between St. Anthony in Roseland and Bohortha.

Southeast-facing, the beach consists of sand and rocks and is a good size at low tide.

Porthbeor lies close to a number of worthwhile locations for the casual visitor to the area such as St. Anthony-in-Roseland, St. Anthony Lighthouse, Zone Point and Place Barton.

Further afield lies St Just in Roseland Church, St Mawes and ultimately Falmouth; whilst to the east lies Porthscatho, the beaches of Gerrans Bay and the Nare.

Porthbeor beach, like a lot of the Roseland Peninsula, is overlooked by many that rush to the bright lights of Newquay or St. Ives and offers a chance to truly relax away from the pressures of everyday life.

The area has some excellent varied walks and should be on everyone's itinerary.
