There's something about the beaches of West Cornwall that sets them apart from the others, and that's certainly the case with this sparkling sandy gem. Portreath Beach is a large sandy beach that's about a quarter of a mile long, and it’s a real favourite with families on St Agnes and Portreath beach holidays.
The water benefits from the perefct conditions for surfing, and the beachside cafes provide mouthwatering snacks for in between sessions. The beach may be beautiful but it's part of something special too, it belongs to UNESCO's World Heritage Site 'Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape' and (as you'll see as soon as you arrive) it's also part of the Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
Portreath Beach is accessible to disabled visitors, and there are some disabled parking spaces to be found in the car park overlooking it too. A seasonal dog ban is enforced between May and September, so please check the dates and times if you’re planning a dog friendly beach holiday in Portreath.
