Take a trip to Polly Joke

Polly Joke beach between Crantock and Holywell

If you're visiting Holywell and Crantock, it's well worth seeking out the nearby Porth Joke, which is a small, picturesque beach cove.

Porth Joke, known locally as Polly Joke, is a small cove nestled between Holywell and Crantock. Untouched by commercialism the beach is a stones throw from West Pentire. If you visit during late spring or early summer you'll be rewarded with a glorious display of wild flowers on the clifftops.

Please be aware this beach is not lifeguarded and there is a risk of rockfalls so keep away from the cliffs. There are no public toilets here.
