The small cove of Ralph's Cupboard is situated just around the corner from Portreath. It is the remains of a collapsed sea cave and if you dare get close enough to the edge the view is quite impressive. This was as close as I dared!

The name comes from the cave's legendary occupant, the giant Wrath (or Ralph). He was a particularly unpleasant character with a fondness for wrecking ships from which he would steal all the cargo and eat the crew. The 'cupboard' is where he stowed away all his loot.
