Local Area



Porthcothan Bay is home to a sheltered surfing beach nicely tucked in between the popular towns of Padstow and Newquay. A wonderful sandy bay with fantastic dunes and a river running through the beach making a great family day out with plenty of exploring available to the children.


There is a cafe/shop in the dunes, plus parking and toilets are both situated just over the road. Just up at the top of the village you can find Macdonald’s Farm, a lovely family place offering a café during the daytime and in the evening, a great bar serving wood fired pizzas – open all summer season.  




If you want to vary your beach days, within easy reach you have Mawgan Porth or Watergate Bay, home to the Extreme Academy for water sports adventurers. Or head up to Treyarnon Bay or Constantine for miles more stretches of golden sands, a huge range within 10 minutes.


There are also several scenic walks on the doorstep along the South West Coast Path, including Bedruthan Steps within a couple of miles, a simply beautiful coastal walk which is a must!
