PORTHLEVEN


Porthleven is situated on the South coast of Cornwall between Penzance and the Port of Falmouth, and has long history as a fishing Port which is still very active today. It is also a tourist hot spot during the Summer months where you can wander around the harbour visiting the small shops for all kinds of Nick Knacks,or maybe just enjoy its fine beaches and explore the tidal rock pools. The South coast of Cornwall is the more tranquil side of the County and the climate and Landscape are more temperate and completely different to the harsh Atlantic North Coast  with its high cliffs and pounding seas. Upon saying this it still gets ravaged by Southerly and South Easterly storms when seas can break over the church and waterfront buildings. So I hope you enjoy a brief look at one of our Cornish Gems.

  5. I remember exploring rock pools when I was in Cornwall in the 1960's. I will have to seach for some of those pictures of me picking up crabs.
