Maenporth Beach

Maenporth Beach is a quintessential sandy cove on the Cornish south coast on the outskirts of the historic and thriving town of Falmouth.

The gently sloping beach of Maenporth was once a natural harbour but today the shallow inlet is an ideal spot for young swimmers, paddlers, and kayaks, whilst at low tide the rock pools are plenty.

There are excellent family facilities that include a cafe, car parking, public toilets and the opportunity to hire out a range of watersports activities including kayaking, sailing and scuba diving. The shipwreck of the 'Ben Asdale' can be spotted off shore, and is often explored by divers.

There is no RNLI Beach Lifeguard presence on the beach.

Please note: Dogs are welcome on this beach except during July and August (10am to 6pm) when a seasonal dog ban is in place. (2023)
