Porthcurno is a tiny coastal village about three miles East along the South West Coastal Path from Gwennap Headland. Among the village's top attractions is a spectacular beach and the breathtaking clifftop Minack Theatre, where a fantastic season of performances from both local and nationally renowned companies are hosted each year.
However Porthcurno is perhaps most famous as the site where the first submarine transatlantic communication cables came ashore in Britain. The Telegraph Museum houses a broad collection and a huge amount of information relating to the historical significance of these cables and particularly, the role of Telegraphy during World War Two. It has been featured in a number of documentaries including the BBC’s What The Victorians Did For Us.
Along with much of the surrounding countryside, Porthcurno beach has been the property of the National Trust since the early nineties. The beach boasts golden sandy shores and turquoise waters where dolphins can sometimes be spotted. Above, on the cliff path, walkers can enjoy truly stunning views and miles of well marked trails across some of the finest scenery Britain has to offer.
