Porthleven is a coastal town and fishing port near Helston in Cornwall. Porthleven is the most southerly port in England and it was originally developed as a harbour of refuge for sailing ships as this part of the Cornish coastline was a renowned black spot for wrecks in the days of sail.
Porthleven's location means it is exposed to powerful swells in the ocean and it has become one of the best-known and highly regarded surfing spots in Britain as a result. Waves often exceeding 2 metres high break on the shallow reef that was shaped by blasting in the harbour during its construction.
During the days of sail and the tall ships, it was quite common for a ship under sail to get trapped in the bay and be pushed on to the rocks at the small fishing coves of Mullion, Kynance and the Lizard by the strong winds and waves.
The beach at Porthleven is separated from the harbour by an old granite pier, and this is located in front of the Porthleven institute and the clock tower
