Mawgan Porth is a small village in an area of amazing beauty for perfectly quiet and private North Cornwall holidays.
The village is a small sleepy cove that is ideal if you wish to get away from your busy life to a spot of tranquillity. However, during the summer months the sandy beaches and good water quality mean that a lot of surfers and tourists come to the area looking to enjoy the fantastic natural facilities and brilliant waves.
Despite its rising popularity with tourists, Mawgan Porth has remained a peaceful and traditional village that has kept much of its original and local charm. If you want to sample some different local cuisine the village has a wide selection of foods from traditional pub food to luxury fine-dining experiences; while the seaside location means you are sure to find a creamy ice cream and some traditional fish and chips just when you need them!
With a number of different coastal walks available in Mawgan Porth you can head towards Newquay in one direction and towards Padstow in the other. Walk past the Bedruthan Steps rocks, which are shrouded in the legend of the giant, Bedruthan, or spend the day walking the South West Coast Path and enjoy the stunning views across the sea.
Mawgan Porth beach has been listed as one of the top ten holiday beaches in Cornwall by The Times newspaper, saying that although there are more popular well-known beaches around the county, Mawgan Porth cannot be matched in its raw natural beauty. With rock pools and caves across the bay you can spend time searching for an array of sea creatures and with cliffs sheltering the bay the area is a haven for birds and other wildlife. Being sheltered on both sides means you have the perfect chance to try out a few water sports like surfing and body-boarding in the cove.
The beach is also dog-friendly and so your four-legged friend can join your seaside fun. The lifeguard service is between April and September meaning you can enjoy the beach as a family in the knowledge that you are in complete safety.
With Newquay just five miles away with a train and airport leading to the rest of the UK, Mawgan Porth has great transport links for travellers near and far. With a shorter travel time to the rest of the country, you can see why this area is a popular holiday destination.
