Flanked by rocky promontories, Porth Beach is protected from much of the Atlantic swell, making it an ideal location for safe bathing. No surprise then, that families flock here, armed with nets for some rock-pooling. Beach car parking, waterfront cafés and toilets are all available. But, there is a seasonal dog ban from Easter to October.
