Portreath is far from a metropolis, which is a large part of its charm, so when it comes to Portreath shops you’re somewhat limited. In the centre itself you’ll find a couple of surf shops, including Bodyboard HQ, the UK number one bodyboarding shop, where you’ll find wetsuits and surfing paraphernalia and Timewarp Belly Boards, hand crafted in Portreath Cornwall from the finest quality marine ply.
There’s a small cluster of shops on The Square which include a bakery, café, hairdressers and a convenience store with a Post Office. There’s a Tesco Extra in Carne Brea a few miles away and an Aldi, too.
