Very nice beach. Lovely fine golden sand. Great for families as the water gently slopes away. You need a wind break here. Great RNLI lifeguards. We parked behind Betty's shop for £3.50 all day. This was really close and I was happy with the money....More

I love the surfing vibe of Mawgan Porth; surf shops, loads of restaurants, ice cream vendors, toilets (20p). Best of all is a small super-market with hot pasties and sausage rolls, and of course cold drinks. All the shops and restaurants are clustered around the...More

The beach is nice and sandy. Plenty of gift and surf shops and the pub and places to eat surrounding it. Only downside is having to pay 20p to use the loo's and there's only three loo's in the ladies toilets and very small. Also...More

Clean, sandy beach that allows dogs all year round! Visited on a sunny day in July and paid £3.00 for the day to park (a bargain in Cornwall!) which could have been reimbursed had we eaten in the nearby pub. Families spread out all over...More
