PORTREATH HOLIDAYS

A harbour wall, good taste and ‘The Vortex’

Portreath cottages

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.

A Local's Guide to Portreath

Portreath is a hidden gem of a village tucked into the North Cornwall Coast. It lies 4 miles south of Porthtowan and 4.5 miles from Redruth inland. It’s a quiet haven away from busier resorts across the Duchy, but it still has many handy amenities, including a few pubs and shops for visitors without making it feel overly commercialised.

Ultimate summer bucket list: The Cornwall edition

From surfing the fantastic waves that roll off the Atlantic to exploring the exotic Eden Project to tasting the iconic Cornish pasty, we’ve put together your ultimate summer bucket list. You may never be finished exploring all the fantastic attractions and natural places in Cornwall but your can give it a try.

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.
