Before setting out check the tide times!
On a spring low tide one can walk to Pednevounder from neighbouring Porthcurno beach but be warned, as the tide comes in you will not only find yourself cut off but facing a climb up the steep cliff “path”
Close to Porthcurno are two coves – Pednevounder and Treen. Pednevounder is the westerly of the two.
Take the B3315 from Penzance to Treen village. Walk in a southerly direction across fields to the coast foot path and then on down to the beaches. The way down to the beaches, particularly Pednevounder is very steep and best avoided by the less agile and those with children. The alternative is to descend to Treen and walk around the headland and this is where the tide times are needed as the beach can disappear when the tide comes is, although it is possible to clamber onto the rocks,the time of day should be considered. The beaches are also approachable along the coastal footpath from Porthcurno.
There is a car park about 10 minutes walk away in the village of Treen. Otherwise you can walk over from one of the Porthcurno car parks.
There are no facilities on the beaches.
A district council dog ban is in force on Porthcurno beach between Easter and 1 October but dogs are permitted on Pednevounder.
27 June 2008 – Pednevounder voted fourth favourite naturist beach in the UK in the ‘Bare Beaches’ 2008 survey published by Lifestyle Press Ltd, publisher of ‘The World’s Best Nude Beaches and Resorts’
