    Coastal Walks

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are some great coastal paths in either direction from Perranporth beach. It is a great way to explore Cornwall's rugged scenery. The views from the paths in the Sand Dunes behind the beach are outstanding. Here you will find some wonderful coastal wildflowers such as Evening Primrose and sea thrift.

    Perranporth Musuem

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perranporth Musuem is small but perfectly formed. It is siutated down a lane just off the main shopping street on the first floor above the local library. Here you will find a great collection of memorabillia from years gone by and plenty of information to tell you about Tin mining which was prevalant in this area.

    There was a small entrance fee when I visited. The museum is open Easter - October Weekdays 10.30 - 4.30, Saturdays 11.00 - 1.00pm.

    Boating Lake

    The boating lake at Perranporth is a great place to while away a couple of hours. You can either hire a rowing boat or pedalo or take the easy option and sit in the lovely gardens surrounding the lake and watch the world (and boats) go by. The gardens leading up to lake are set alongside a stream which leads down to the sea. There are lots of benches dotted around for a spot of relaxing in the sun it is also in a lovely sheltered spot, just a few minutes walk inland from the centre - a great place to go if the sea breeze gets a bit too much for you on the beach.

    MASSALA INDIAN RESTAURANT: CURRY BY THE SEA

    by Tricky_Dicky69 Updated Jan 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nice little curry house by the sea. Food was pretty good and quite cheap as well. Inside of restaurant is fairly basic and lacks a bit of atmosphere. Service and food were good enough to make it an enjoyavle experience though.

    Tricky Dicky's rating 7 / 10

    The Wateringhole: A cold beer on the beach!

    by redflame100 Written Oct 14, 2004

    Bar on the beach! What more could you ask!

    You can sit on the veranda of this place with the sand between your toes and the sun beating down on you with the beautiful view of Perranporth, its beautiful sandy beach and the sea at your disposal.

    Just what was needed was a cold beer here after climbing down the from the top of the cliff top.

    If you havent been there - you should go!

    Favorite Dish: The Beer -it was cold on a hot day!

    Perranporth High street has a number of quaint gift shops, clothes shops, shops selling everything you would need for the beach and a few surf shops.

    There is a great co-op supermarket just off the mini roundabout as you enter Perranporth and a Boots Chemist on the road leading to the beach car park.
