Located within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this Blue Flag award winning beach is one of Cornwall’s most popular surfing beaches bordered by soft golden sand and backed by large dunes and dramatic cliffs. From the beach at low tide you can walk to the neighbouring and equally stunning beach at Chapel Porth to the east.

Porthtowan's large expanse of sand, perfect for a game of rounders or cricket, makes Porthtowan a firm family favourite, there’s even a children’s play park at the top end of the beach.

Full lifeguard cover from the 1th of May to the 26th of September, then during weekends in October and full cover during October half term (2021).

Please note: A seasonal dog ban applies on this beach from 15th May until the 30th of September (10am-6pm) (2020).
