Great beach and cliffs. We have been there in off-season and it was beautiful. We were the only ones at the scene and walked around the beach and the coastal path. Highly recommendable - although I can't imagine how crowded and packed it must be during the peak season in the summer.

Went for a late walk to this beach. From carpark about a 5 minute walk to the beautiful golden sands. Lovely bay. Steps up and over to the Minack Theatre. While watching the waves we saw 2 seals having a lovely time riding on the surf. No parking charges as it is out of season, 20p to use the toilets... More

Beautiful walks around the coastline with fantastic views. Coastal walks are amazing but a bit challenging in the rain

We have visited this place last summer and we were very impressed and loved it a lot! We will definitely go there this coming summer as this place is heaven on earth! Lots of things to see and explore as well.

Wonderful (and popular) beaches. This is my favorite part of the coastal path. Don't forget to stop at the Minack theatre and telegraph museum.

Lovely clean beach. Nice and secluded. Great for us and the kids. Great addition of the grab rails to help you up and down to the beach. Lovely.

You can park up at the Minack theater for free and walk down if you want to rather than pay the rip off parking charges. Also do you REALLY expect me to pay 20p for the loo? just reach over and wave in front of the sensor. happy to pay a fair price for parking so why not do that... More

Such a wonderful beach, beautiful turquoise sea. Just missing a few palm trees and you could easily believe that you were in the caribbean. Great place to see basking sharks. A real hidden gem.
