Pedn Vounder Beach Introduction

One of Cornwall's most idyllic beaches, you'd be forgiven for thinking Pedn Vounder Beach was somewhere in the Caribbean with its soft golden sand and crystal-clear, teal-hued waters. Situated on the south coast of the West Penwith peninsula, it sits hidden below a dramatic cliff formation, providing a secluded haven for paddling, sunbathing and picnicking. What's more, you don't even need your swimsuit – it's known by many as West Cornwall's go-to nudist beach.

Where to stay

A seaside scattering of quaint granite cottages, the pleasant and peaceful village of Porthcurno is just a few minutes' walk from Pedn Vounder Beach and is best known for its unique outdoor clifftop theatre. It's home to a handful of inns and B&Bs, as well as a few restaurants, cafes and shops. For those who like their creature comforts, Penzance makes a good alternative. An old harbour town brimming with salty sea-weathered character, it features a Victorian promenade, charming shopping arcades and tantalising seafood restaurants. There's also the flamboyant Egyptian House and vibrant art and craft galleries that fuel the town's somewhat bohemian vibe.

Things to see

Pedn Vounder Beach is one of several in the area and is the most secluded, sitting below an impressive cliff face. It can be accessed by boat or, more commonly, by following the tortuous path down among the steep rocks, although this is not recommended for less able-bodied R&R seekers or those with small children in tow. Once there, the seclusion, warm waters and clean sand make it the perfect place to unwind. The area's most famous attraction is the clifftop Minack Theatre. Carved out of granite rock, the open-air theatre provides a stunning venue for performances between May and September, while the Atlantic Ocean behind it serves as a spectacular backdrop. Back in the day, the village of Porthcurno was once a high-tech hub of transatlantic telecommunications. The Porthcurno Telegraph Museum details this fascinating story, along with that of the underground tunnels that housed its top secret equipment during WWII.
