Things To Do

Chapel Porth is a secluded National Trust beach, 2 miles to the west of St Agnes. Clear turquoise water and a stunning sandy beach at low tide are flanked by rugged Cornish cliffs. The beach is over-looked by the ruins of a Cornish tin mine, Wheal Coates, a World Heritage Site. The beach is best visited at low tide, where a large expanse of white sand appears, stretching all the way to Porthtowan Beach.

Chapel Porth is a great spot for surfing, and there are two car parks nearby with ample parking, the main one being right at the beach. A lifeguard is provided between May and September, so whether you’re hitting the surf or enjoying time with the family you can do it with peace of mind. There is a café and toilet facilities at the main beach car park

Please be aware a seasonal dog ban is enforced.
