Porthcurno Beach and Minack Theatre is 7 miles south-west of Penzance and is one of the finest beaches in Cornwall, golden sand set in a cove beneath a curve of granite cliff where, facing to the south-east, it acts as a “sun-trap” to the joy of sunbathers, while the sea is a magnificent turquoise-blue (reminiscent of Caribbean beaches). The eastern end of the beach is flanked by the headland, on which stands the famous Logan Rock – a monumental stone weighing 60-70 tons. Above the western end of the beach is the famous Minack Theatre, built in the style of an ancient Roman Amphitheatre, but with the added drama of the ocean as its backdrop, it is now a world-famous venue for summer season of plays and musical entertainment.
