14 Photos of DuPorth Beach, Cornwall
Following on from previous posts mentioning Duporth Beach today we are actually on the beach - and what's more the sun is shining. Pretty good for February.
Duporth means two coves in the Cornish language. On some older maps it is shown as Du Porth.
Access to the beach is only via the South West Coast Path. There are steps down from the path. The beach is backed by high cliffs.
The photos above and below show water running down the cliffs. You may be able to see a light coloured rainbow as the sun shines on the water in the photo below.
It has to be mentioned that the cliffs are subject to rock falls - see the sign below.
Lots of rocks on the beach.
The cliffs are higher at the far end of the beach.
Interesting how the rocks vary - well, at least it is for me.
Looking up at the far end of the beach a tree balances precariously on the edge.
Rocks of all sorts reaching the water.
Looking back along the beach
For most of the time we were the only two people on the beach, but two men and a woman arrived walking with their dogs.
There are a few houses on the top of the cliffs. The coastal path passes in front of the houses along the cliff tops.
Back to the steps leading down from the coastal path.
Note that there aren't any facilities, toilets etc. on the beach - and there isn't a car park. This means the beach doesn't get overcrowded.
