Porthtowan Beach

Nestled between two dramatic cliffs, located on the north Cornish coast near St Agnes, Porthtowan beach is a firm favourite with local surfers enjoying the atlantic swells and holiday makers alike. Lying within a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, spectacular coastal cliff walks can be accessed from the beach to the neighbouring beaches of Chapel Porth and Portreath.

When the day ends, there’s a restaurant / bar overlooking the beach, perfect for watching the setting sun after a relaxed day at the beach. Porthtowan beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag status in 2015 for it’s cleanliness and excellent water quality.
