  • When the tide is out the beach is never ending so great for long walks. Dogs are allowed for quite a lot of the year outside of the peak summer season. The waves are great for surfing. A great pub and bar are both on the entrance to the beach so good for food while you're there.
  • Loved Perranporth Beach and the surrounding area/Town. It just has a great vibe, chilled & relaxing atmosphere with plenty to do for all age groups. Back again soon for 5 days :)
