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 and apart from the large expanse of sand which is perfect for a game of rounders or cricket, there’s a children’s play park at the top end of the beach making Porthtowan a firm family favourite.

The coastal footpath skirts over the cliffs heading east to St Agnes and west to Portreath with spectacular views out over the sea. Situated on the shore is the popular Blue Bar, a relaxed beach side café where you can grab a drink and watch the sun go down.

Please note: A seasonal dog ban applies on this beach from Easter to end September.
