Porthnanven Dinosaur Eggs Cornwall

The granite boulders on this beach were formed by the erosive action of waves on a beach 120m years ago. When water levels fell they were left embedded in the land until now when they are being released by coastal erosion. They make an excellent photography subject, but are difficult to walk over. Because of their shape they are sometimes referred to as dinosaur eggs.
