Chapel Porth Beach
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.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for Chapel Porth Beach.

- 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.
