A trip to Cornwall wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the beach. From rugged cliffs and outcrops on the north coast, to the calmer sailing waters on the south coast, we’re lucky to have so much choice. Our personal favourites locally include Porthpean, Caerhays, Gorran Haven and Pentewan beaches.

Just a few

Local beaches

Some of the most beautiful bays in Cornwall are just a short drive away. Right on our doorstep we have Porthpean and Pentewan. And if you fancy exploring slightly further afield, there are many beautiful beaches within easy reach of Tregongeeves, including Perranporth and the golden beaches of Newquay on the North Coast.

Enjoy a short break

Near Charlestown

Porthpean beach

Porthpean, near the historic village of Charlestown, is our personal favorite. Just a 10 minute drive away and ideal for families, it’s a small cove with lovely rock pools to explore at low tide and is great for paddling. There’s plenty of parking and a seasonal cafe, with toilets open daily.

Under 10 minutes

Pentewan beach

Also just 10 minutes down the road, the glorious sands of Pentewan beach stretch for over half a mile, and the beach is suitable for swimming, surfing and other watersports. There’s free parking, cafes and toilets located 500 meters from the beach in Pentewan village.

Find some food too

A family favourite

Porthluney beach

Caerhays (sometimes called Porthluney Beach) is another favourite in our family. Just a short drive from Tregongeeves, Caerhays has soft sand and is in a sheltered cove. The cafe serves a good food and drinks selection and toilet facilities are available.

Great sheltered position

Gorran Haven

A secluded cove that’s great for families, and popular for kayaking, swimming and surfing due its sheltered position. There’s a pub, beach shop, toilets and plenty of parking available. Gorran Haven is also dog-friendly, though they must be kept on a lead.

Exploring Cornwall

Golden sandy beaches

Newquay beaches

Whether you’re looking for family fun, a relaxing cove or pumping surf, Newquay boasts some of the most beautiful golden sandy beaches in Cornwall, and is only a 30 minute drive away. Choose from Perranporth Beach, Mawgan Porth, Watergate Bay, or the iconic Fistral Beach – all worth a visit to catch a wave or glorious north-coast sunset.

Eat at the beach too

No cooking? No problem! A meal at the relaxed, family-friendly Sam’s on the Beach in nearby Polkerris comes with one of the best sea views in Cornwall. For fine dining there’s the Michelin starred Driftwood just 30 minutes down the coast from Tregongeeves. Or, if you would rather stay closer to home, try The Kingswood Bar and Restaurant which is just up the road.

Coronavirus Update – 24th March

We wanted to give you a quick update if you’ve booked with us or are wanting to in the coming months.

At the moment we are closed until the end of April and will continue to monitor the situations.  This is to ensure we can do our bit in helping to stop the spread of the virus – now is a time to stay at home and spend time with family there.  If you have a holiday booked with us or have any questions then please do give us a call or send us an email to mail@tregongeeves.co.uk

 Whilst now isn’t the time for you to come to Cornwall, it’ll still be here when we get through this – we’ll see you again.

Take care and stay healthy

Judith and Family.
