“Spent a day there”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Very nice beach with easy parking. Great for children and adults alike. I remember it being a bit cloudy that day but it didn`t spoil our enjoyment

Beautiful sandy bay with spectacular cliff top views
Tide was low at the time of our visit and a large expanse of sand was exposed ,Lots of dogs all well behaved and well controlled by their owners on the beach .

“Safe and family friendly”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

A wide, flat beach with loads of room for the kids to run around. Lifeguard patrol in the season and good waves, although it can be a fair way to the sea when the tide goes out.

You can park on the beach (pay & display) so access is brilliant for the less mobile. There is a pub on the beach that serves decent pub grub and there is an ice cream shop.

What more could you want?

“Lovely sandy bay”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Porth is just outside Newquay and is both residential and hotels and holiday apartments. It is a lovely sandy bay and is not as busy as Newquay.
