Portscatho

South Cornwall

Portscatho was formerly one of the busiest pilchard ports on Cornwall’s south coast. The village boasts one of the county’s largest granite breakwaters, alongside a smattering of art galleries, knick-knack shops and lots of second homes (the village is absolutely dead in the middle of winter). It's best reached via a walk along the coast path that includes the nearby beach of Porthcurnick.
