Holidays in Porthallow

Holidays in Porthallow are perfect for those wishing to escape the pressures of everyday life and indulge in complete peace and relaxation.

Sit and gaze at the glorious view of Falmouth Bay from the shingle beach and let yourself while away the time watching the world of dog walkers, busy fishing boats and curious rock poolers. Once a busy village with a thriving pilchard industry, Porthallow is still used by some fishermen. Good fishing, safe swimming, sailing and coastal walks are all on the doorstep of your cottage in Porthallow and the neighbouring traditional fishing villages of Coverack and Porthoustock are also within easy reach.

Around Porthallow

The surrounding area is a dramatic contrast from the craggy coastline, with the still waters of tiny creeks and inlets leading to the Helford River. Some of the best cliff walks can be taken from Porthallow and on a clear day you can enjoy panoramic views of Falmouth Bay and the Cornish coastline. Porthallow has a beach café, public house, post office, tea shop, gift shops and even its own vineyard. The climate is usually milder here in South Cornwall than in the rest of the country which makes it ideal for holidays in Porthallow all year round. Parking is on the shingle beach where you are free to offer a donation towards its upkeep.

For those looking to explore the surroundings in an entirely different way, Porthkerris Dive school offers divers of all levels a chance to experience the underwater scenery in this popular dive location.
