  • Porthleven beach is next to the harbour and near the village centre.

    Porthleven beach is separated from the harbour by the granite pier which lies in front of the Porthleven institute and clock tower. When the tide is out it is possible to walk in an easterly direction along Porthleven beach for approximately three miles, past Loe Bar and Penrose Estate. Alternatively, you can walk along the coast path the coast path out of the village with the Porthleven beach below you.

    At high tide the beach all but disappears.

    Excellent surfing location for intermediate to advanced surfers with a natural reef break. Best months is between September and December but you will always get a strong surfing community and on big days news will travel and may get packed.

    The beach is a short walk along the harbour to the village centre. The village has parking, shops, and a selection of cafe and pubs.

    We have no dog information for Porthleven beach.

      Overall Rating:

      Always too rough.
      Been to Porthleven twice and on both occasions it has been too rough to go onto the beach. I am sure it is good but is exposed and so make sure it is a calm warm day.
