Perranporth is perfect for those seeking to escape the 9-5.
Clear waters, cliff walks and three miles of golden sand.
Nestled among rolling hills that inspired Winston Graham’s swashbuckling Poldark novels, Perranporth is a bustling village with a variety of eateries.
From Droskyn point, you can take a leisurely walk into the village. As you wander down the hillside, you will come across the Perranzabuloe Millennium Sundial, designed by local artist Stuart Thorn.
True to the spirit of the village, the stainless steel gnomon has been set to show Cornish time: 20 minutes ahead of GMT. Stone seating has been incorporated into the structure, which looks onto the beach below.
In the village, there is an array of beach-side shops and cafes along with local amenities.
If you walk a little further from the main street, you’ll find yourself in a charming park with a large duck pond which is home to swans and ducks.
As you walk back towards the beach, you can take advantage of hiring a kayak to take out onto the water, paddle board or surf board.
Feel the sand between your toes and breathe in the fresh salty sea air as you walk along the beach.
The beach is patrolled in season by RNLI lifeguards. It is a safe beach which is popular with families and couples.
It is also a dog friendly beach, which makes for a great morning run or afternoon out with your canine friend.
Whilst on the beach you can stop for a drink or something to eat at the Watering Hole – the UK’s only bar and restaurant on the beach! In the summer enjoy a BBQ on the beach in the evening.
After you have fuelled your body, why not climb the steps located to the right of the restaurant embedded in the cliff face. Venture along the cliff path along to Holywell Bay.
A perfect vantage point to watch the sunset over the horizon in the evening.
