Went here for a New Year's Eve walk with the kids and underestimated how many other people would have the same idea. Even on a cold winter day the beach was full of people and the cafe was almost full to capacity. It's a nice beach with rocks to climb, a big expanse of sand and some really big waves.... More

Nice beach for a dog walk, not the most scenic beach but good for a nice long dog walk as the beach is nice and long.

Love Perranporth, beautiful golden beach with a great pub. Lovely little village to have a mooch round with shops and lots of good food. I love it here and try to visit at least twice a year.

Like many attractions it is best visited when... More

Visited in December and it was so very cold. But the view was amazing and I have uploaded some pictures. There are two car parks one up the hill and one down. We parked uphill and walked down enjoying the view. A shortcut to get to the beach was visible but was closed so we ended up walking quite a... More

Everything you would want on a glorious sunny Sunday. Good parking, toilets ideal for dog walkers. Good choice of places to eat - I would recommend the watering hole - not had a bad meal there.

IMO the best beach in Cornwall for families. Easy access, Excellent Life Guard cover. Many many local amenities for all the family. Plenty of room all along the 3 mile sand.

We love this area as have a pooch who also loves the miles of beautiful beach. Is dog friendly and has loads of coastal footpaths to explore. Great place to unwind out of season for a break as we do.
