Information


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. Porth beach does not allow dogs between Easter and October.

Beach Water Quality


Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
  - Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
  - Good: generally good water quality
  - Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  - Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
