Porthoustock

Known locally as Pro'stock. Porthoustock is signposted from St. Keverne on the B3293. The beach has a large flat expanse of coarse dark sand and shingle. Parking is allowed at the back of the beach taking care not to obstruct the boats of the local fishermen. There are toilets behind the beach and some picturesque thatched cottages. Coastal footpath enthusiasts can walk north on the unofficial coastpath to Porthkerris over Pencra Head and Mên Talbac (dependendent on the state of the tide as part of the route is cut off at high tide). You pass through the quarry workings of the former St. Keverne Quarry but there is no footpath to the south. You must follow the signed inland route.
