    Portreath Beach Info

    Portreath beach is a sandy beach with cliffs at one end and harbour at the other. At high tide the beach is split into two.

    The name Portreath means “sandy cove” and is popular with body boarders and surfers.

    The harbour is steeped in history as it was the main access to the Cornish copper mines and also some ship building.

    Facilities include car parking, toilets, seasonal lifeguards, beach cafe, pub/restaurants, shops including surf hire and the Portreath Surf Life Saving Club.

    Portreath Beach has dog restrictions. No dogs Easter to October.
