Love this beach, great for body boarding and lovely sand. Great facilities, toilets, cafe, bar and you can hire deck chairs, wind breaks etc for £3.50 for the day. also a 2 minute walk down the digby to the Main Street to pick up a fresh pasty for lunch. Lots of people stay on the beach until late as the sunsets and it's so peaceful to,sit with a glass of wine and bbq.

This is a very pretty little beach , was very busy as you would expect in August. Mainly all surf boards/body boards in the sea tho and could be dangerous for those without boards.

Although it;s the furthest beach from where we are staying, we always wander along to Porthmeor because its different form the others, lots of surf activity, bigger breakers & a change of aspect of The Island. The sand is soft & lovely too
