Perranporth is a small coastal town in north Cornwall which is popular with surfers and famillies alike. It's popularity is the result of the combination of good surfing waves and a large sandy beach.
We stopped there for just one night while we were walking some of the south-west coastpath. We were walking from Newquay to St. Ives and this was our first stopping point. We had walked about 11 miles to get there on a very hot day.
The sandy beach is one of the main attractions here. When the tide is out it goes for about 2 miles but gets a lot smaller when the tide is in. If you are walking the coast path, are heading west and arrive when the tide is out I would advise dropping down to the beach a.s.a.p. to avoid having to walk through the sand dunes where it is hard to find the route and very hard work.
Perranporth has enough available to keep anyone occupied for a few nights, as long as you are not loking for wild nightlife. There is a choice of a handfull of pubs that do food as well as restaurants offering chineese, indian, italian etc. We went for the curry option, as is my habit.
We stayed in a hotel / b & b which was great value, in a good location and all booked on-line. This was definitely a room with a view as it looked eastwards straight down the huge sandy beech.
The town is definitely worth a visit for a few days or for a day trip if you're in the area.
- Pros:Great sandy beech, good for surfing, lifeguards.
- Cons:not many.
Nice little curry house by the sea. Food was pretty good and quite cheap as well. Inside of restaurant is fairly basic... more travel advice
