Visiting the Cornish resort Portreath? Here’s what you need to know about Portreath car park options
Looking to park your car in Portreath? Portreath beach car park is on the seafront, right by the beach making it the best option for a day at the beach. There are approximately 125 spaces, but this is the only designated Portreath car park so it can be busy, particularly during the height of summer.
Portreath beach car park charges start from £2 for one hour, but you can park all day (the car park closes at 10pm). There is a short set of steps to the beach, unsuitable for wheelchairs (access is level from the road). The public toilets are nearby Portreath beach car park, just a two-minute walk away.
On-street parking on Beach Road, Tregea Hill and other surrounding roads is another car park option here, but you’ll need to get there early and spaces aren’t guaranteed. The three pubs in Portreath all have their own small car parks, Portreath Arms, Basset Arms and Waterfront Inn but you’ll need to be a paying customer to use these.
Alternatively, avoid parking in Portreath altogether and get the bus directly to Portreath beach car park from Cambourne and Redruth using the 49 service and Truro and Porthtowan using the 400 service.
Booking your self-catering holiday cottage in Portreath is a smart choice thanks to its pretty sandy beach and small harbour, making it a truly relaxing spot.
