Holidays in Perranporth

Located on the North coast of Cornwall, Perranporth is famous for its three miles of golden sands and growing list of epic eateries, many of which are dog friendly. This seaside town is the perfect holiday destination for families, surfers, and couples alike.

Situated on the North coast between Newquay and St Agnes, Perranporth is popular for its big sandy beach that nestles into the rugged coastline and attracts surfers from all over the UK. Spend your days relaxing on the beach, let the kids run free across the sands, enjoy a picnic in the dunes, learn to surf with the local surf school, or walk the stunning coastal path - there is so much to see and do in Perranporth you might need to visit more than once!

Your holiday doesn’t end when you leave the sand either, as a host of fantastic pubs, restaurants, and cafés keep the fun going and ensure you’re never far from a fantastic feast with a view. The social calendar at Perranporth is one of the town’s crowning achievements too, with one of Cornwall’s top festivals, Tunes in the Dunes, turning the golden sand into the country’s most unique dance floor.

Beaches in Perranporth

Whether you want to catch some waves, bask in the sun, or explore some rock pools, there’s a beach in and around Perranporth for you.

Perranporth beach – Famed for its consistent surf, Perranporth is a mecca for beach holidays. Three miles long and with plenty of access to the coastal paths and nearby restaurants, it’s perfect for every kind of beach day. Oh, and there’s a bar right there on the beach!

Holywell Bay – A little ways up the coast from Perranporth, Holywell Bay is known for its expansive sand dunes and iconic twin stacks, which can be seen in the BBC’s iconic series, Poldark. You’ll find a surf school here and lifeguards in the summer months, so this beach is great for those looking to dip their toes into watersports.

Trevaunance Cove – In the other direction, Trevaunance Cove in St Agnes makes for a lovely beach day, with its historical surrounding coastline and fascinating rock pools at low tide. Spend your days relaxing on the stretching sands and your evenings in the nearby pub, which welcomes dogs just like the beach.
