Perranporth Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 51 photos


Perranporth is just located 7 km. away from the surfing capital of England - Newquay. This town becomes blooming in Surfing Industry as it set on one of the perfect place to surf in England! Brit Surfer called it "Coast of Dream".
With the Stunning rocky cliff and beautiful coastline by the Atlantic Ocean. Perranporth seems be one of the best place for the Seaside holiday. Just only couple of thousand people. It seems like the best to get away from the big city thoughout England.
The weather might be a little bit swampy as usual as British weather! Cloudy...Rainy...wet...humid...So it's not the beach for getting the Sun tan!

How to get there?!?

As I've mentioned that Perranporth is not too far from Newquay. And Newquay is linked so well with the good transport system around England.

-The quickest way(sometime cheapest) to get to Newquay is by Plane...Newquay international airport is served with many low cost airline(bmi baby,ryanair and others) around England and Europe. From Cork, London, Bristol, Dubline, Alicante and Biarritz. It's the best choice to come from London when Ryanair gives away a very cheap price for only 30 GBP!

-And by bus...with the extensive bus network. It served by national express and bus throughout Cornwall via Truro. Also, there's a cornwall explorer pass for 5.60 GBP per day - it's great for one day trip and if you don't have time. It's practical because the distance between town A - B is not so far! Please, keep in mind that British Bus is not so cheap!! Also, Bus is the only way of public transportation to get from Newquay to Perranporth. You can take the bus number "587" or just look at the header shows...Perranporth. It costs 1.30 GBP for one way and it takes 30 minutes to get there. The bus will drive on very narrow street as it always be in Cornwall!!!


I would highly recommand....Perranporth YHA! In my opinion, I think it's the best hostel in the world! This hostel has only around 24 beds! It's very popular among the surfers and the holiday makers! So, make sure to book it ahead of time at www.yha.org.uk! And it costs only 18 GBP a night! - with this amount of money...you can expect the warm welcome....you will feel right at home in this tiny hostel....you will get along and have the dinner with anothers who will always have the topic of "Surfing".
It is not only the friendliest hostel I've been to but also...It is the most spectular view overlooking from the hostel! The tremendous view of the ocean from the rocky cliff....you can also listen to the wave crush the shore by the night...Watching people surf from above...but you have to walk up hill to get there(really worth it)!
