    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. Portreath beach does not allow dogs Easter to October.
