One of the most popular spots with those on beach holidays in St Austell, Porthpean offers a large sandy beach that attracts the crowds each summer. This sheltered beach makes a safe, sandy haven for families, and there’s always something going on. You’ll find a smattering of rock pools at low tide, and the waters are popular with swimmers, windsurfers and sailors.
As jet skiing isn't allowed, you and the children can enjoy the waters with peace of mind. There's also a seasonal dog ban, and the beach is cleaned every day during high season.
