Port Quin, Cornwall


  • Located in New Polzeath, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Head east on the coast path from Pentire Point and The Rumps and you walk a wild and rugged coastline. Having passed numerous rock and sand coves, you arrive at the National Trust's Doyden Castle. From that high ground, you see an inlet at the end of which is the coastal hamlet Port Quin. Cliffs rise steeply on either side of the inlet. A large expanse of sand, stones and rock is exposed at low tide. The inlet is guarded by Doyden Point and Kellan Head. You can also walk the coast path from Port Isaac or cut across land. All these routes are clearly marked on the Ordnance Survey Explorer 106 'Newquay & Padstow' map. There's plenty of parking in the hamlet as well
  • The inlet and huge cliffs that guard it are similar to those at Boscastle
