Constantine Bay to Porthcothan Bay

Home is
Constantine Bay.
Constantine Bay (locally known as Connies) is west of the village with a small store and surf shop. Constantine Bay
The beach is popular with experienced surfers and has lifeguard patrols in the summer, as the bay does have some treacherous rip tides. Having also started surfing myself!

Sunset Constantine BayConstantine Bay was a favourite holiday location for Margaret Thatcher (Prime Minister) during her premiership. With Trevose Golf Club having a very good links course lapping onto the dunes.
Receding tide
Constantine Bay is named after Saint Constantine. A 6th century Cornish Saint possibly identified with a minor British King Constantine.
Treyarnon Bay is the next passing point. The beach also has a very dangerous left-hand side.
Treyarnon Bay
The tide comes in very quickly around the island on the left, often leaving people cut off from the mainland. It has a very good natural rock pool on the right, which acts as a swimming pool.
From Treyarnon Bay, I ascend the hill overlooking Porthcothan Bay.

I look forward to your comments
