That is entirely possible, Ray, as it would be the perfect place for a ferry to have been sited when the estuary existed. That was certainly until the 6th century AD, and quite possibly a lot later.

It would have been difficult to cite a specific beach with such long expanses of sand on either side. A specific small beach might have warranted a definite article, but a large expanse of beach would not, hence Portreath and Vellandreath (Sennen), both considerable beaches, but no def. art. in the names.
