The Minack open air theatre and restaurant. Performances at the theatre run from May until September. The back drop for the stage is 'The Atlantic' ocean. A unique theatre and one not to be missed.
The Minack Theatre is best visited for the evening performances. Take our advice and take plenty of warm clothes and blankets. After a sunbathing on the beach, it can feel very cold sat outside at the theatre!

Not much fishing going on in the boat today. Heather B enjoying the views of the rocks near to the 'Logan Rock'
Penberth Cove. Time stands 'still' in Penberth. A jewel in the Lands End Peninsular crown.

Looking towards Penberth Cove from the sea. There is a small beach at the cove during low water but a relaxing day can still be spent sat on the side of the slip, or on the rocks.
'Penver', 'Penny Lynn' and 'Hicca' all ready to go to sea and catch the Mackerel on the evening tide.
The old capstan wheel at Penberth. The wheel was used to manually pull the fishing boats up the slip when they came back from sea. The fishermen now have the luxury of an electric winch to make life easy.
The 'fleet' is back from sea and on the slip at Penberth.
If you visit Penberth Cove you will probably meet Richard 'Taffy' Matthews. Here Richard is preparing some of his fresh caught Makerel fillets for the afternoon BBQ.
Newlyn Harbour. A busy harbour and fish market. Plenty of fresh fish and shell fish are available for purchase in Newlyn. While you are in Newlyn look out for 'Jelberts' ice cream shop. 'Heaven in a tub' !
A red sky at night, farmers delight. A red sky in the morning, farmers warning. (So they say)Plenty of spectacular sunsets can be seen at 'Lands End'
Not quite sure what the locals call this rock formation. We call it the 'Old Mans Head'. This picture was taken from sea.
