Pedn Vounder

Area

Hidden below the cliff of Treryn Dinas lies one of Cornwall’s best beaches, Pedn Vounder (also known as Treen beach). On a low tide, you can make the walk eastwards round the rocky headland from Porthcurno beach. Be aware of the tide times when visiting because this beach is cut off as the tide floods and the only way back is a difficult but fun climb up the steep cliff path. Directly to the east of Pedn Vounder is the famous Logan’s rock – an 80 tonne granite boulder that can be rocked back and forth by a single person.  Pedn Vounder is an unofficial naturist beach so if visiting, get your kit off and join the party! (This isn’t compulsory). Treen Farm campsite is a quiet, beautiful campsite within a stone’s throw of the bay.

Directions

Head towards Treen and follow signs to Logan’s Rock. Park in the grassy village carpark in Treen. From the village, follow signs to the coast path and turn right when you hit the coastal path. Keep an eye out for a small, overgrown footpath that dives down to your left. An easier route is along the beach at low tide from Porthcurno.
