Portreath harbour and beach
Portreath harbour and beach
I suspect many people walking the coastal path pause here on Lighthouse Hill to take this view. Any chance for a breather as the route begins to steepen. It is a good overview of the village, a sandy beach protected by a western headland, and a small harbour protected by a western breakwater.
