Rinsey & Rinsey Cove

The spectacular landscape of Rinsey Cove between Porthleven and Praa Sands is a hidden treasure well worth seeing.

The cove is in the shadow of a former tin mine engine house, Wheal Prosper which was built in 1860, though the mine was worked earlier in the century producing an average of 860 tons per year between 1832 and 1849. It ceased production in 1865 but the engine house still stands which provides a dramatic backdrop to the ocean below.

The area is steeped in history with tales of smuggling and shipwrecks which forms part and parcel of Cornish charm and culture.

You can drive to Rinsey along the coast road from Porthleven or walk past the Ship Inn and continue on to the coast path.  There is a lovely beach at low tide accessed by a steepish path from the cliff.
