The sand had been pulled from the beach at Porthbeor during recent storms. Large boulders had replaced it by the sea, glistening in the wake of the ebb tide. Access was tricky too, as the wooden steps had been completely washed away and subsidence had destabilised the coast path down to the beach. However, the beach itself was a haven of peace and tranquility, a calm after the storm. Out at sea there was no suggestion of the wildness that has preceded this visit.

The scene after recent storms at Porthbeor beach.
It was a quiet, rainy morning at Porthbeor for this visit. The tide was falling back, revealing another new beach. Out on the flat sea cormorants could be clearly seen about their business and a couple of buzzards circled above. Otherwise, this beautiful, natural beach was briefly the domain of interviewee Yayeri, enjoying the elemental power of this wonderful environment.

There was a tranquil, Mediterranean feel at Porthbeor beach for this summer visit. The sea lapped against the beach towards high tide. The outstanding setting, totally natural, made the long, steep descent worthwhile.
