Portloe beach, Cornwall

Portloe lies on the Roseland Peninsula of South Cornwall, near the picturesque village of Veryan. South east facing, the small beach of dark sand and some shingle is completely covered at high tide. Sheltered by Jacka Point and Portloe Point the beach is backed by the slipway and harbour and overlooked by the Lugger Hotel.

The village of Portloe is picturesque and has many points of interest. There are usually a few fishing boats on the slipway for budding photographers and fine walks along the coast path south west towards Nare Head or north east towards Portholland and Caerhays. Good snorkelling is possible around the cove at high tide but there is not enough swell for surfing.

Portloe, behind the beach offers all the usual facilities. There are no restrictions on dogs.
