Port Isaac  

   

   

Port Isaac Beach is situated in one of the most picturesque villages in Cornwall, recognised by many as ‘Port Wenn’ in ITV’s ‘Doc Martin’ television series. It is a small, shingle and sandy beach nestling in the sheltered harbour.

 

The beach at Port Isaac stretches out to the twin piers, which form the harbour, at low tide revealing an expanse of sand. As this is also the harbour the beach is home to a small fishing fleet which is left stranded with the tide.

 
There is a small stream that runs across the beach and there are plenty of rockpools around the harbour at low tide to explore.

  

Port Gaverne, unfortunately does not have lifeguard cover during the year, so you have to take extra precaution if swimming here. Please be sure to observe the beach safety code.
