“Gorgeous sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Lovely beach, went for a winter walk here on a short break and was really great, lovely view of the sunset just such a shame I didn't have my camera! Lots of dogs around which didn't bother us but I know some people would mind. Definitely recommended!

“"Stunning Beach"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Perranporth Beach is ideal for all and attracts a very mixed crowd of surfers, body borders and is ideal for families.We visited on a nice sunny October day and took some fantastic photos whilst walking along the beach and from the cliff view point above, well worth the steep walk up.The beach car parks like all off Cornwall are not the cheapest if you want to visit for a short while as they charge a day rate, but there is a pay& display car park behind the town only a short walk away.Well worth a visit.

Lovely sandy beach, depending on your fitness levels access to it is very steep but didn't put us off, we enjoyed the walk and exercise.

“Perfect Beach for families and all.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Perranporth Beach has a vast expanse of fine sand, ideal for families and in fact everyone. There is a bar/restaurant on the beach, so it's a good idea to make your base fairly close to this for convenience(s). This beach is very popular with surfers, bodyboarders and kite surfers. There are places to buy/hire wetsuits and boards, or you can just lie down and watch others having fun. There is a car park at the entrance to the beach, but this can get very busy, so I would suggest arriving early to get the best parking. You could easily spend all day on the beach and it is also within a short walk to the main street with shops and restaurants etc.
