Portwrinkle Beach, east of Downderry, can be reached by parking in Portwrinkle car park and walking west towards the main beach. Two small car parks on the cliffs at Portwrinkle, one is private, the other council run. Cross the main beach and then go over the rocks where there is a sleepy, peaceful and pebbly beach. The climb over the rocks can seem never ending but when you get used to it takes about ten minutes.


Portwrinkle is a very quiet beach and some days you can be there all alone. It this is a delightful little beach but it does have the drawback of being overlooked by the coast path.


Although the village has no shops, apart from the beach car park cafe, toilets are available and there is a post office in nearby village of Crafthole.

There is no lifeguard cover.

A seasonal dog ban applies on this beach, dogs are banned from Easter Day to 1 October.
