Cornwall north coast - Porthtowan to St Agnes head

Porthtowan beach, the English surfers mecca. Then a very fine stretch of cliff with the Wheal Coates industrial archaeology site. Part way along Chapel Porth provides an extra tea spot and safe swimming. For Trevaunance cove, see St Agnes to Cligga head gallery
