Portwrinkle Beach is worth bearing in mind if you’re after some surf during a beach holiday in Kingsand or Cawsand, and if you don't surf it's still a great spot to sit back and watch the experts (without the crowds of some of the more popular becahes). There are two beaches in Portwrinkle, and the east beach (Finnygook Beach) is a favourite with experienced surfers and those on family beach holidays.
The beach may only be 18 miles from Devon's Plymouth but it showcases the surf that has made Cornwall famous. There's a little cafe on the cliffs above this beach that's always a great place to have something to eat and watch the surfers enjoying the waves.
You’ll find toilets and two car parks (one is owned by the council and the other one is private), although there are no other facilities, and there is a seasonal dog ban enforced at Portwrinkle's West Beach so pets can only join you between October and Easter. Access to the beach is via a steep path, so bringing pushchairs or wheelchairs isn’t recommended. Bathing can be dangerous at this beach so check the safety signs for guidance when you arrive.
