Known locally as Polly Joke, this is a wonderful beach. Porth Joke can be accessed by walking from West Pentire, Holywell Bay via Kelsey Head or a valley walk from the NT car park adjacent to Cubert Common. Polly Joke is dog friendly all year round. It's perfect for dogs as it also has a freshwater stream flowing across the beach.

A short walk from West Pentire or from the National Trust car park on Cubert Common, Porth Joke is one of our favourite beaches and as it's dog friendly all year round, you and your four legged friends can enjoy it at any time of the year.
