Porth beach, Newquay, Cornwall
  • About Us

    Porth Beach Info

    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.

    Porth Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

    Porth Beach has dog restrictions. Dogs not allowed between Easter and October.
