A huge lovely beach and miles of
cliff walks, but Porthtowan is not really a beach resort and is hardly
big enough to be called
a village. There are a small number of shops and Inns leading down to the beach, making this a gloriously peaceful beach venue (one and a half miles of beach at low tide), surrounded by lovely cliff and beach walks. There is a convenient and large car park adjacent to the beach. Surprisingly, the free parking spaces outside the car park are often available in June and September and sometimes in August. Also next to the beach are a few shops and cafe/restaurants and also a bar. Often outdoor barbecues put on by the cafe/restaurant owners. Just south of the village pop into Reg Morse's Farm Museum with over 1,600 machinery and domestic farm implements.
