Perranporth is situated on the north coast of Cornwall, close to the beautiful beaches in and around Newquay.
Perranporth is the gateway to one 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. Surrounded by countryside that inspired Winston Graham’s swashbuckling 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 and from the village the coastal footpath provides some great walking.
From the village, Perranporth Beach is easily accessible which is ideal if you’ve got young ones in tow. For a longer walk, head along the soft sand to Ligger’s Point two miles away if the tides out and enjoy a gentle stroll back along the dunes which are home to birds and butterflies and tiny sunbathing lizards.
Enjoy golfing at its best with stunning views over the beach, or if you want a small game of pitch and putt, and then stop off for a picnic in the seafront Promenade Gardens and a hire a boat to row around the lake.
On 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.
Plenty of live music can be found in the bars and pubs and two popular festivals, Tunes in the Dunes and Bands in the Sands, also take place on Perranporth beach.
