Perranporth Beach

Perranporth is a large, sandy beach, over two miles long, with good surfing conditions. The beach is backed by extensive sand dunes and a nice walk can be found through the dunes to St Piran's Cross and the ruins of St Piran's Oratory. It's also on the South West Coast Path.

Family Beach

Lovely beach, if you walk a bit further round its less busy and loads of room for the kids to run around. The only problem we occurred was some people not controlling their dogs, mind the majority were well behaved.

A good sandy beach and great for body boarding. Has all the amenities and we were able to hire wetsuits and body boards which was very handy.

Amazing Beach!

This beach and the surrounding area are great! If you don't fancy getting your feet covered in sand then the benches and grass areas overlooking the beach are great to sit and have a picnic. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Superb for the Family

This is a great beach the whole family can enjoy. Three miles of sand. Great for surfing, sandcastle building, lifeguarded swimming areas and easy access to nearby facilities including plenty of places to hire or buy a wetsuit. Can get crowded on sunny days in the summer.
On windy days the nearby Trevaunance Cove (South) or Holywell (North) can often be more sheltered.
Dogs can be walked on the beach here year round.
Nudists from Army Camp lurk at the far North End.
