Port Issac Beach
Port Isaac Beach, set within a charming and historic fishing village, is known for its picturesque scenery and traditional Cornish character. The beach itself is small and pebbly, nestled within the harbor and surrounded by steep cliffs and historic buildings. It's particularly popular with fans of the TV series "Doc Martin," as Port Isaac serves as the fictional village of Portwenn. The harbor beach is accessible during low tide, offering a unique spot for paddling, exploring rock pools, and enjoying the local atmosphere.
