Porth beach is a sandy family beach with rock pools and backed by cliffs. At low tide you have a great expanse of sand but this does mean it can be a good walk to the sea.
As one of the most exposed beaches within the Newquay area this beach has a good swell with a break that varies depending on the position of the ever changing sand bar. Popular with novice surfers and body boarders.
Facilities include car park, toilets, cafe, pub, shop and seasonal lifeguards. The beach is also only a 20 -30 minute walk from Newquay town centre.
Dogs not allowed between Easter and October.
