Porthcurno is, for us, one of the top coves to visit on the SWC700. There’s a really pretty, sandy beach, stunning turquoise water and massive cliffs. It's easy to imagine you are in a different country. The cove is about three miles south east of Land’s End, whilst you are touring in the area it’s worthwhile popping here. There is a large car park, however it gets busy in peak times and there is not always space for motorhomes. If you arrive early you should find a space though. The Telegraph museum is adjacent to the car park. Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is full of history about the importance of this area and beach. The first transatlantic telecommunications cables came ashore on the beach in the age of copper wire, connecting up the world and building a new industry. More recently many sub-sea fibre optic cables have been brought ashore at Porthcurno to connect the rest of Britain with vast volumes of data, meaning people sitting on the beach are now literally sitting on top of the internet or surfing over it.
