Porthcadjack cove is situated a stone's throw west of Portreath along the north coast of Cornwall. Due to its locations, very few people actually visit the cove with the majority being walkers tackling the coastal path. Samphire Island can be seen, sitting just off the beach and can be accessed on extreme spring low tides.
Park at Portreath and take a gentle walk westward, along the coastal path, past Ralph's Cupboard ( a large collapsed cave) and down a zigzag path to the cove.
