Portheras Cove is hauntingly beautiful and only reached by walking along the coast footpath. Just perfect for a secluded day on the beach

Rinsey beach is just below Rinsey head tucked under the National Trust heathland between the harbour town of Porthleven and the popular expanse of golden beach of Praa Sands
