Tom and Hetty from Koru kayaking have just spent a long weekend at Treen and Porthcurno enjoying the stunning coastline by kayak and helping  some one fulfil their dream of swimming from Logan’s Rock to the Minack Theatre.

Koru Logan Rock

We arrived at Porthcurno at 2pm on the Friday and met up with Sarah who for several years has dreamt of swimming the beautiful bay at Porthcurno. In the summer Sarah approached us at St Agnes and asked if we could help her with a support kayak and we were happy to oblige.  The sea was flat and with slight off-shore winds conditions were perfect for the swim.  Tom kayaked with Sarah to Logan Rock and after a small break on a secluded beach, Sarah started the swim.  All went well with the swim and Sarah left Porthcurno with a large smile on her face.

Treen campsite

After Porthcurno we pitched our tent up at Treen Farm Campsite which overlooks the stunning bay and were joined by fellow pilot gig rowers and friends on Saturday night.  We all enjoyed a good meal at the Logan Rock Inn that evening which I highly recommend and will return to soon.

The next day we took two tandem kayaks and went on a stunning kayak adventure from Porthcurno.  The first beach we landed on was Treen Beach and had it to our selves enjoying swimming in the stunning waters and finding a suitable rock ledge to jump off.

We then paddled under the incredible Minack Theatre which is perched on the cliffs to the side of Porthcurno and waved at the on looking tourists.

In the next bay we landed on Porthchapel Beach (not to be confused with Chapel Porth) and went for another swim in turquoise waters enjoying the shore break.

After the short break we headed towards and then beyond Porthgwarra finding some incredible caves and enjoying small rocky coves.  Just before Nanjizal we turned the kayaks round and went with the wind and swell back to Porthcurno.
