Porthtowan Beach
Certificate of Excellence

Lovely clean and well presented beach with attentive and knowledgeable lifeguards. Also well signed for high/low tides and the cutoff point at high tide.
Highly recommended for a visit.

I know most want sun & sand but my boy wants sea & space! If you get up early enough (and happen to rent next to the beach) boy oh boy do you get this!

Chester had the best time & met so many lovely friends - there wasn’t much to offer off the beach but as that’s the star attraction he didn’t mind!

Although not my favourite beach Porthtowan is still a beautiful beach. Parking not far from the beach, bar and shops adjacent. Very popular beach in the summer, we mainly visit in the winter months with our dog.

This is a great beach - especially in winter when you can take the dog. It is used all year round by surfers - so great for seascape photography.

Stayed in Porthtowan between Christmas and the New Year, what a great find. Usually stay in St Ives but we wanted somewhere by the beach to walk the dog. Fantastic place can get a bit blustery at times when walking but never very busy . Beach is good for long walks with the dog , sandy and when tide is out great place for them to run.
