We have a beach cafe whichserves excellent homemade cakes, meals, breakfasts etc. Porthkerris is also great for kayaking, walking, swimming, fishing, sunbathing and relaxing......

A great place to camp and dive. The diving is great with both shore and boat diving with plenty to see.A well run dive centre. The facilities are good and well maintained. Definitely worth a trip.

Stayed 1 night in the field above the beach. Freshly cut grass on a sheltered cliff, with fantastic views. Was extremely pleased with the facilities which we're clean and spacious, along with brilliant customer service. Would DEFINITELY visit again!
