PORTREATH HOLIDAYS

A harbour wall, good taste and ‘The Vortex’

Visit Portreath

The long sandy beach is the first port of call for most visitors to Portreath, especially surfers who want to experience ‘The Vortex’, a surf break that peels off the harbour wall. A stream trickles down the middle of the beach and out to sea and is a unique feature amongst the neighbouring beaches. The Hub is the popular beach cafe that also hires out bicycles for those who would like to explore on two wheels.

Portreath Cottages

Portreath is an ideal place for both a quiet and an active holiday. The holiday cottages sit within the heart of this community and beyond, so you can be in on the action or watch from the sidelines.

Wildlife watching in Cornwall

With miles upon miles of unspoilt coastline and range of diverse habitats, Cornwall is one of the best places in the British Isles to see marine mammals, sharks and seabirds from the land and sea. But with dozens of places around Cornwall’s coast where you can spot wildlife in action, where are the best locations to get up close and personal with the giants from the deep, or the best time of year to go birdwatching or seal spotting?

A local’s guide to St Ives

St Ives in West Cornwall is a beautiful cultural hub that draws artists and families alike to its sandy shores. The famous Tate Gallery sits in the centre and is surrounded by cafes and eateries sit behind the beaches.

A holiday hotspot

A place of good taste aptly describes Portreath and the surrounding area. In the town has plenty of shops to browse around and the harbour wall is worth a visit too as you may get a glimpse of people riding the infamous Vortex. The beach is dog-friendly in the winter months, but at the height of the summer season a ban is in place.

Further afield, Bassetts Cove, as the name suggests, allows dogs all year round, but is completely submerged at high tide. St Ives and the Tate Gallery is not far and neither is the ‘hot spot’ and sheltered beach of Porthtowan due to its towering and beautiful cliffs. For a family day out the nearby Base Camp Cornwall is described as the ‘best indoor activity centre in Cornwall’ for those not so sunny days.
