Porth Joke

Nestled between popular Holywell Bay and Crantock Beach, Porth Joke is a pretty little stretch of sand so often untouched by crowds of tourists. Visit during late spring or early summer and witness a glorious display of wildflowers sweeping up the cliffs from sand to sky.

Porth Joke in North Cornwall This small Cornish beach sits between Holywell Bay and Crantock, making it an off-the-beaten track option for those who head to north Cornwall for its exceptional surf, luxury beach rentals and celebrity chef-owned restaurants. Porth (or Polly) Joke's almost-secret location makes it the perfect spot for sunbathing beyond the crowds. When the sun melts into the sea and the sky begins to darken, there’s nothing more humbling than watching the tide wash away the footprints and return to a vision reminiscent of an undiscovered desert island.

Surf Escapes and Luxury Breaks in Porth Joke Just a few miles from Cornwall’s surfing mecca Newquay, Porth Joke benefits from a rarely surfed beach break on the north Cornwall coast. This beautiful unspoilt stretch of coastline is sandwiched between the towering cliffs and green fields and benefits from one of the most stunning sunsets imaginable. To stay on the north coast and not try your hand at surfing would be just as much a local crime as not tasting a Cornish pasty and with private surf schools right on the beaches, taking to the waves has never been easier.
