Surfers and bodyboarders favour Portreath’s small pretty beach to catch waves and then hang out afterwards at the beach cafe. The beach itself is sandy with a little shingle and surfing equipment can be hired from the surf shops near the beach too. Other nearby beaches include Chapel Porth (which is popular with belly-boarders), Godrevy Beach and Bassetts Cove.
After all that fun on the beach, you will need to refuel and where better than at The Terrace…with sea views and fresh locally sourced ingredients, this hidden gem serves up tasty lunches and evening dinners for their guests. Alternatively, if you are looking for food that is a little more casual, The Atlantic Beach Cafe Bar cooks up relaxed food such as burgers and pasties, that always go down well.
Fancy eating in at your holiday cottage? A day trip out to St Ives’ weekly farmers market will provide all the inspiration and ingredients you need to rustle up a tasty meal in your own kitchen and don’t forget to pick a Cornish tipple or two as well!
Slightly north of the Portreath, explore the disused tin mines of this coast line. Poldark fans will no doubt be familiar with the name Wheal Coates Tin Mine. Now managed by the National Trust, this site gives a glorious show of heather in the summer months and spectacular photo opportunities featuring the mine against the backdrop of this stunning coastline.
