Family Fun




Portreath is a small village located in Cornwall, England, on the county's north coast. It is a popular holiday destination due to its beautiful beaches and stunning coastal scenery. Here are some ideas for things to do while on holiday in Portreath.

With a 250-mile coastline, Cornwall has no shortage of fantastic beaches and coves.

Portreath Beach is a popular swimming, surfing, and other water sports destination. The beach is on the north coast of Cornwall and is known for its golden sands and clear blue waters. It is a popular spot for sunbathing and paddling, and there are also plenty of rock pools to explore at low tide. The beach is located in a sheltered cove, which helps to make the waters relatively calm and suitable for swimming. There are also facilities available at the beach, including toilets, a café, and a car park.

North of Portreath, you will find the beautiful coves of Porthtowan and St Agnes, whereas, to the south, you will find the endless stretch of golden sands of Godrevy and Gwithian Towans.
