- Portreath beach is a gently shelving sandy beach with cliffs at one end and harbour at the other. The name Portreath means “sandy cove” and is popular with bodyboarders and surfers. When the tide comes in the beach is split into two. Portreath harbour is steeped in history as it was the main access to the Cornish copper mines and also some shipbuilding. Facilities include car parking, toilets, seasonal lifeguards, beach cafe, pubs, shops including surf hire and the Portreath Surf Life Saving Club.
- Gooden Heane Cove is a sandy beach with some rock pools to explore. The cove is named after Gooden Heane Rock that sits just off the beach. A large car park on Lighthouse Hill is just above the cove and it also walkable from Portreath town, although you can’t get down to the beach as vertical rock faces. The only access is really by boat or kayak from Portreath beach around Horse Rock by the harbour entrance.
- Smuggler’s Cove and Western Cove are sandy beaches with rocks. Good views from the coast path but no access down to the beach, although if you do want to visit the cove then the best option is from Portreath beach by canoe. The collapsed sea cave is known as Ralph’s Cupboard where openings in the rock were used to store contraband, hence the name Smuggler’s cove. The most famous smuggler being Ralph, hence Ralph’s Cupboard. Facilities are within the town of Portreath the other side of Western Hill.
