Porthoustock beach

Porthoustock beach

Located on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula is the curious little cove of Porthoustock. It is a bit of a mission to get here along the convoluted country lanes but when you arrive you find there is a working quarry at the southern end of the beach.

Whilst the concrete silo pictured here and the piles of aggregate on the quay at the other end of the beach aren't particularly attractive it makes this a little different to most of Cornwall's beaches.

This is a popular spot for diving with quick access to the wrecks of the Manacles reef and crystal clear waters.
