Surf's Up!

The fantastic Atlantic breakers make for magnificent surfing for all abilities, so there's lots of fun for everyone, all under the watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards who operate on the beach every day between April and September.

It's also a dog friendly beach, so your four-legged friend can enjoy their holiday as well.

For the walkers in your life the South West Coast Path passes right through Mawgan Porth. Walking northwards brings you to the legendary Bedruthan Steps, supposedly named after the giant Bedruthan who used the rock stacks as stepping stones.

Going west the path climbs up to Berryl's Point and onwards to the vast expanse of sand at Watergate Bay, where you will find plenty of places to eat and drink before catching the bus back to Mawgan Porth.

  • There is easy access from the adjacent car park onto the beach.

    Betty's Surf Shop have a beach wheelchair with big wheels that they hire out.

  • Yes, they are situated at the entrance to the car park.

  • In November 2019 a significant cliff fall took place at Bedruthan beach, with a further rock fall nearby in January 2021.

    The initial rock fall caused damage to the lower section of the steps to the beach as well as the cliff face safety netting. Following the first fall, the National Trust commissioned an initial geological survey to determine the stability of the cliff face and assess whether access could be reinstated. The report concluded that further, in-depth, specialist feasibility studies would be required. These will identify whether there are options for stabilising the rock face and repairing the steps and safety infrastructure.

    The steps are expected to be closed for the foreseeable future, with no confirmed timescale for the assessment and potential repairs. (2022)
