The sandy, sheltered Porth beach is one of Newquay's finest, and with a vast expanse of sand and plenty of rock pools at low tide, it's perfect for a family day at the beach. It's also lifeguarded between 10am and 6pm during the summer months. To the east of the beach you'll find Porth Island, featuring evidence of an iron age settement, and accessible only via a narrow foot bridge!


Whipsiderry is great for exploring, with plenty of rock pools to keep you busy. Although the steps down to the beach are a little tricky to negotiate, it's well worth the journey. Plus - this beach is dog friendly all year!

Things to do


One of the best walks is the coastal path, you can follow this to Watergate Bay, and if you're up to it, all the way to Mawgan Porth. You'll experience breathtaking views, and if you're lucky, you may even see some sea life!


Roo's Beach, in Porth, is a high-end fashion and lifestyle shop where you'll find stylish clothes, shoes, make-up, stationary, candles, crockery, blankets and more. 

Further afield, Newquay high street has a range of shops where you'll find everything you need from food, to toiletries, to gifts. 

Other activities

If you're looking for something more active to do, you can try out zorbing at Cornwall Zorbing Park

Alternatively, if relaxation is what you're looking for, the spa at Sands resort is open to the public.

Boatmans loft was a great apartment for our minimoon. Clean, comfy, modern, had everything we needed for a week away. walking distance to porth beach and watergate bay. 5 minute drive to Newquay. Would recommend to anyone! Will be booking with aspect holidays again!

Perfect little holiday cottage, ideal for our honeymoon. Great location, fantastic spot for watching the sunset-just over the road to the beach.

We had a fabulous stay here, moments from the coastal path and stunning sea views and amazing sunsets. The apartment was equipped and decorated to a high standard with spacious master bedroom and ensuite. Would stay again!

Would highly recommend this to anyone. Great location and brilliant facilities. I will be staying here again.

Overall, good value for money.

Excellent location, close to Porth beach which is beautiful. Great as a base for exploring Newquay and North Cornwall coast. Decent pub which also serves food just down the hill in Porth.

Good amount of space for two people. Might be a little cosy with children. One of the beds in the second bedroom will only accommodate a small child.

Kitchen equipment is not ideal - recommend bringing own knives etc. We had trouble using the oven.

Bathrooms are decent with good water pressure.

We had quite a bit of noise from the upstairs apartment (sounded like children running back and forth) so if this is likely to annoy you, it might not be the apartment for you.

But overall it is a decent little apartment. The issues we had were minor annoyances, we had a lovely holiday here.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We were pleased to see that you had a lovely holiday at Boatman's Loft and that you found it to be such a good place for exploring the local area and further afield. We were sorry to see that you thought the kitchen equipment could do with updating and we appreciate you highlighting where you thought this could be improved; we have passed on your comments to the property owner. When staying in an apartment there is a chance that you may hear the noise from the property above, but we would always hope that people in an above apartment would be as respectful to others as possible and thankfully, noise like you described is not a regular report from guests at this property. Thanks again for your feedback, we hope to see you again soon. Ben. Customer Services

Boatman's Loft is perfect for a beach break. With three beaches near by, the great location means that you don't have to travel to the busy beaches in Newquay itself. The apartment is lovely and quiet, clean and comfortable - perfect for our family of 3. (Having two bathrooms was a bonus!)

Excellent location for beaches however the apartment could do with some tlc feels like someone’s lived there and left all their belongings. And outdoor furniture is dangerous and un usable if you have children.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your helpful feedback. We are pleased to report that following your feedback, the owners have now ordered new sofas and the outside furniture has been attended to. Unfortunately, being left outside and exposed to the sea air, they can deteriorate quite quickly, but we are very sorry that we had not been aware until you had mentioned this. Thanks for letting us know and we hope that you enjoyed the amazing location of Boatman's Loft. Tanya, Customer Services

Great little apartment, so close to Whipsderry beach, and Porth.

We are a family of 4 (two girls 11 & 7) this suited us fine. Close to surf schools and close enough to Newquay if you wanted to pop in or avoid you could do either.

Apartment well equipped. Nice and quite so perfect for a family
