  • Information

    Chapel Porth beach is a small sandy cove which at low tide extends to a wide beach beyond the cliffs. When the tide is out you can walk south along the beach to nearby Porthtowan. Alternatively, the South West coast path extends along the cliff top in either direction.

    Many caves scattered along this stretch of coastline formed by coastal erosion.

    Chapel Porth is renowned for good surf.

    There is plenty of parking in the Chapel Porth National Trust car park at the beach as well as more spaces in the car park at the top of the hill above the cove. Other facilities at the beach include toilets, small cafe and lifeguards in the summer.

      The beach was a bit busy at first but we were very surprised when the tide goes out you get a very large beach and plenty of room for everyone. The high cliffs gave protection from the wind making it possible to camp out for the whole day. Well worth a trip for those wanting to get away from the resort towns and villages.
