Porth is a west-facing beach in a long, narrow cove, between Lusty Glaze and Watergate Bay beaches which looks towards Newquay Bay and the Headland. Even at high tide, enough of the exposed beach remains to enjoy. Popular with visitors with walking difficulties, Porth Beach is level with the road and allows some parking on the sands. It’s ideal for families, offering safe bathing and a sheltered location away from the busyness of the town centre which is just a 5minute drive or 25 minute walk.
