Perranporth has been used to welcoming visitors ever since St Piran, the patron saint of Cornwall, landed. He gave this picturesque village its name: Perran’s Port. The first of the Poldark novels was written here and you may well find smugglers’ caves as you walk the coast path with its outstanding views.

Perranporth is famous for its three miles of wide sandy beaches, offering brilliant surfing possibilities. For younger visitors, there is a tidal bathing pool cut into the rock, and many rock pools where you can look for wildlife. Sheltered from the sea breezes, a boating lake offers rowing boats and pedaloes amongst lovely gardens. The village offers food for thought with its own little museum giving insights into the tin mining which used to sustain the area. There are many shops selling giftware made from Perranporth’s tin. Perranporth offers opportunities for both relaxation and vigorous exercise.

In the evening, unwind in the Waterhole, the bar on the beach, where you can watch the sun going down over the magnificent Cornish Coast. That’s the way to relax!
