Perranporth

Perranporth is best known for its glorious beach, and rightly so. Three miles of soft golden sand provide more than enough space to accommodate dog walkers, kite flyers and picnicking families. Children love the rockpools, caves and the seawater swimming pool built into the back of iconic Chapel Rock.

Perranporth is renowned for good waves, and has a number of surf schools and surf hire shops. The beach is monitored by lifeguards during the main school holidays, and daily from May to September.

The infamous Watering Hole is the only pub in the UK actually situated on the beach, what better place to enjoy a pint and look out at the stunning sunsets.

St Agnes

St. Agnes is a picturesque village on the north coast of Cornwall. Steeped in mining history, the village still retains a traditional friendly Cornish atmosphere and makes a wonderful base for your holiday, being an ideal location for touring the rest of Cornwall.

The dramatic coastline and breathtaking scenery includes the stunning Chapel Porth Beach and St Agnes Beacon, the hill that looms high over the village and the coast.

Below the village of St Agnes sits Trevaunance Cove, once a busy harbour but now a favourite place for families and surfers. It's easy to spend a day here with plenty of rockpools to explore as well as the sandy beach, plus a good selection of places to eat and drink.

Portreath

Portreath Harbour view

Situated at the end of a valley between high cliffs, the village of Portreath straddles a small river that runs down to the long narrow harbour built to export copper and tin in the 19th century.

Portreath is now a popular family destination with a soft sandy beach that is also a favourite of surfers when the conditions are right. There's a wealth of facilities including a carpark right beside the beach, friendly pubs, shops, surf hire and cafe's.

For those who like exploring, see if you can find the five remaining sea baths cut into the rocks by the local landowner in the 1700s.

Start your cycle journey here on The Coast To Coast trail that goes from  one coast to another as the trail links Portreath on the North coast and port of Devoran on the South coast.

Newquay

One of Newquay’s greatest features is its beaches. There’s a different beach for every day of the week, with an array of activities at each one. From Fistral where Britain’s greatest surfing events are very often held, to the family friendly Towan Beach right in the centre of town, or the outlying beaches at Crantock and Watergate Bay. 

The beautiful river Gannel links Newquay to nearby Crantock, where at low tide you can connect the two.

Cycle the country lanes from Perranporth to Newquay via Crantock, ask us for the safest route.

Bolingey

Step back in time with a visit to the hamlet of Bolingey.  Located approximately half a mile from Perranporth, it is famous for the Bolingey Barbarian rugby team. 

The quaint cottages and a delightful 17th century traditional Cornish pub, The Bolingey Inn, make it the perfect place to visit if you want to escape to some tranquility. 

Take a stop here if you are cycling the Saints Trail link from Perranporth to Goonhaven,
