The Beach


Mawgan Porth's Sunday Times award winning beach has acres of golden sands surrounded by rugged Cornish cliffs. It's great for just relaxing, playing family games, making sand castles or maybe just flying a kite. Rock pools abound and there are caves just waiting to be explored. The fantastic Atlantic breakers make for magnificent surfing, be it on Malibu or body boards, so there's lots of fun for everyone, all under the watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards who operate on the beach every day between April and September.


During, or after your days on the beach, you'll never want for a choice of food here at Mawgan Porth whether you want freshly made sandwiches or baguettes from the delicatessen at Cornish Fresh, pasties and hot drinks from Betty's or local farm produce and delicious food in the cafe at Bre Pen Farm. There's a variety of fare too from the Coasta Cafe, pub lunches or sandwiches and evening meals from The Merrymoor, evening dinners from Fire Bistro, The Blue Bay or Jon's Bistro restaurants, or takeaways at The Blue Fish Bar fish and chip shop. A great choice of fine foods are available at Mawgan Porth's two hotels, namely the family orientated Bedruthan Steps or the adult only Scarlett. Food for thought, eh?
