Perranporth

From the Blog

Perranporth is situated on Cornwall's north coast, a few miles south of Newquay.

It hosts some of Cornwall's most popular and spectacular beaches, where the miles of golden sand, huge surf and sand dunes, jam-packed with wildlife, all combine to make a pretty impressive location that helped to inspire Winston Graham’s Poldark novels. The busy village has plenty of family eateries serving up traditional food along with many cafes and bars that cater for the beach crowd. For the more active, there are surf and kite buggy schools on the beach. Perranporth Beach is one of the most accessible in Cornwall, with carparks nearby, theres also a sand chair available for less able people. 

For those who fancy a longer walk, head north along the soft sand to Ligger’s Point two miles away. Be carefull to check the tide before starting out on this walk as it needs the tide to be going out to compleate it.  In the other direction, head west along the South West Coast Path to St Agnes.

On rare rainy days, learn all about the life and times of Perranporth at the local museum. Open all year, the museum features costume displays, a replica of a traditional Cornish kitchen and an exhibition of early surfboards. Then head to one of Perranporth's waterfront pubs or bars and enjoy excellent food with sea views.
