At low tide, visitors can enjoy ample space to relax on the beach, as well as explore the rock pools. Accessing the beach may be a bit challenging for some due to the nearest car park being located quite a walk away. The peace and quiet it offers are well worth the walk. Therefore, Porth Joke Beach is the perfect spot for a romantic picnic, a family day out or a quiet coastal walk.
