Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide Recommended 2014 excellent water quality.

Porthluney Cove is a privately owned, secluded family beach with a large expanse of golden sand that's popular with the locals. South facing, in front of Caerhays Castle and Gardens, the beach enjoys a striking backdrop. There's plenty of room for beach games and exploring the rocks on the west side at low tide. The beach is excellent for swimming .  The beach is directly in front of the daily charge car park and seasonal cafe, picnic area and basic toilet facilities are provided.

The opportunity to visit the grounds of Caerhays Castle is well worth while especially in the springtime.  The beach is dog friendly all year round but visitors are requested to keep their dogs on leads from June-September.  There is no Lifeguard cover provided.  Water quality is routinely tested and is currently designated as meeting European bathing water standards.
