What Else is Near Here?

Perranporth has a huge beach, a sea pool in the rock, St Piran’s Oratory to discover, some great coastal walks and a bar on the Watering Hole beach that was recently voted one of the best beach bars in the world.

Perranporth has a small Co-Op supermarket, as well as an exciting High Street containing everything from local butchers, hot pasties, through to gifts and buckets and spades. There are many small restaurants, from fish and chips to indian/chinese food – and pubs serving top quality food.

Oodles of green picnic spots, sand dunes, or sandy beach areas if you want to settle down for the day and relax. Hot pasties and ice creams are for sale close to the beach car park from several shops.
