  • Beautiful beach and lovely village ,only problem the parking is very limited. Lovely places to eat and the beach is accessible down a ramp. Was a lovely day with lots of surfers.  more »
  • Beautiful, clean, sandy beach with crystal clear sea. Enjoyed by families & dogs. Plenty of parking. There’s a Cornish Flag flying proudly on a bed of rocks out at sea. If I was Cornish, I’d be proud ...  more »

  • Long flat beach, plenty of room for everyone no matter how busy it gets. Lifeguards present through the main season with separate areas for surfers and body boarders normal on busy days. Beach is also dog friendly all year round, although dogs have to be on leads in the main summer months
  • Lovely sandy beach, approximately 3 miles long when the tide is out, approximately 1 hour walk end to end. Make sure you allow 2 hours when the tide is going out, as it comes in very quickly and you can easily be cut off. Lovely beach for children to run around on.Watering Hole bar and cafe to get food and drink
  • What’s not to like about Perranporth Beach. Walk the full length at low tide, there’s a lovely rock pond and place to rest very rarely visited by many.
  • Long flat beach. Good parking and has disabled access buggies avaible for getting on the sand. It's a huge favourite with dog owners. There can be more dogs than people in the winter months. Very little dog poo on the beach. Good place for a long walk , to get to the far end of the beach can be a 2 hour round trip. When the tide comes in the beach is cut in two but access is avaible via a path in the dunes. Great paragliding area when the wind suits.
  • Great long beach for all the family. Great place for surfing, or you can just watch! It is dog friendly and it has a The Watering hole on the beach, where you can eat and drink here in the shade or outside table, great place to watch the sun go down in the evening. Can get very busy in summer on the main part, but if you walk further down it is much quieter.
