The area of North Cornwall covered by our National Trust property has some amazingly beautiful, breathtaking and well known sites to visit, such as the interesting and quirky Tintagel Old Post Office, the perfect picture book Cornish harbour at Boscastle, or the windswept cliffs and beach at Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps .
But perhaps the most special and best keep ‘secret’ of our wonderful slice of the world is a tucked away beach near the Camel estuary, which is regarded as Cornwall’s best beach by both the Cornish people and frequent visitors to the county.
Situated within the North Cornwall National Trust area, this beach is the largest beach in the county. Due to an influx from the Gulf Stream, it has very warm waters and looks more like a tropical paradise than a beach in the UK. With abundant wild life, an intriguing history, world class surfing (the National Trust hold surf competitions here!!), an abundance of cafes and restaurants, boats trips and of course the glorious family friendly sandy beach, Porthemmet Beach has something for everyone and is the perfect holiday destination. Come and visit!! We hope to see you soon!
