Best known for its 3 miles of soft golden sand, Perranporth is a small seaside town facing the Atlantic Ocean.

Popular with families for the wide range of activities on offer, Perranporth is a great spot for surfing, snorkelling, sailing and generally splashing around.  It’s also ideal for a doggy day out, as the beach is dog friendly all year round!

Don’t miss the opportunity to explore Perranporth’s hidden gems. When the tide is out we recommend walking up the beach to Ligger Point, or a trip to Chapel Rock. If that just seems like too much effort, sit down in the sand, put down your beach towels and relax. It’s the beach that everyone raves about, and because there are miles of sand you’ll feel like you have the beach all to yourself.

There are a range of shops near the beach, and the famous Watering Hole Beach Bar is a fantastic place to sit, eat and drink, with live music on some nights.  The beach is lifeguarded during the main holiday season and Perranporth is also a year-round dog friendly beach.
