Perran Beach is known for its surf and provides plenty of places to enjoy the fresh air, and even hidden caves and rolling dunes to explore. A natural seawater pool is warmed by the sun throughout summer days and makes a unique area for a dip.
The beach is monitored by lifeguards during high season and there are two areas for swimming which are well patrolled.
