A Local's Guide to Porthleven

Old weather-beaten mariners' pubs that can tell a tale or two, a picturesque high-walled harbour peppered with colourful fishing boats, and some excellent seafood restaurants with fabulous ocean views: the historic Cornish fishing port of Porthleven really should have made it onto your holiday hot-spot list by now.

Romantic things to do in Cornwall

With its breathtaking scenery, slower pace of life and relaxed atmosphere that feels a world away from the everyday, Cornwall is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, if only for a dreamy long weekend. Wake up to the sound of the waves, enjoy breakfast in bed and visit some of the county’s most idyllic spots together.

An enchanting stay

A holiday in Porthleven provides a truly enchanting stay that is perfect for the whole family. The South West Coastal Path allows view upon view from secluded rock coves to rolling pastures. There are several pubs in the village, including the delightful Harbour Inn, right on the historic harbour where you can sit by the window and watch the goings-on. Food and fish is a biggie and the community celebrates every year with a food festival.

Porthleven beach is three miles of glorious sand and the gnarly reef break is at the harbour end. Not one for beginners, but nevertheless still a crowd puller. Flambards is a short drive away for a good day out as is the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Within the village itself there are plenty of things to do with shops to peruse and restaurants to repose in.
