About This Spot

Porth Nanven is a great little cove in West Cornwall. It is full of different features which can be shot during both low and high tide - although it's better during low tide.

The beach is lined with spherical boulders at the upper end which can be used for long exposures during high tide, especially when the sea is rough with big waves.

When the tide is low, you can access to the some of the more interesting features such as smooth granite rock faces.

The small islands in the distance are a good feature to include in the background of the wideangle shots.

As the cove is west facing, it's ideal for sunsets, especially during spring and autumn, but it can be visited during most months.
