A vast golden beach is the gleaming centrepiece to this seaside town. Stretching for over three miles, and surrounded by stunning countryside, its fine sands and dramatic waves make Perranporth one of the region’s most popular destinations and an ideal place for sunbathing and surfing.
Deep, unspoilt and sprinkled with rockpools, the beach is tailor-made for kids. There’s so much sand here that it’s easy to find a quiet spot, with space to play games or quietly craft giant sand sculptures. All the facilities you need are here too, including shops, cafes and showers.
If you or the kids have ever wanted to learn how to surf, Perranporth is the ideal place to learn. Several top-rated surf schools are based here and the conditions are perfect for newbies.
Away from the sands, explore the South West Coast Path for epic coastal scenery and the most incredible sunsets.
