Porthoustock – sun bathers in February

Porthoustock beach is located on the more sheltered eastern side of the Lizard peninsula a couple of miles from the village of St Keverne. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of Porthoustock is the enormous concrete silo at the southern end of the beach; now disused, this was used to store aggregate from the still working quarry. At the northern end of the beach is a quay used by the quarry to load aggregate onto boats.
