Perranporth Beach Waves is inspired by the beautiful Cornish beach at Perranporth. At low tide Perranporth beach and neighbouring Penhale sands join together to form one of the largest stretches of unbroken sand on the North Coast. At one end is Perranporth, the archetypal beach town with the high street backing on to the sand. Progressing towards Penhale Point an extensive network of sand dunes rise behind the beach. This is a Special Area of Conservation and also home to a buried church.
Most of Perranporth’s facilities and features are located towards the town end of the beach. There are rockpools, caves, a stream and Chapel Rock, with a small bathing pool on its seaward side. A little further along is the ‘Watering Hole’, a pub not just overlooking the beach, but actually right on the beach.
Despite its size Perranporth beach can become very busy with beach-goers concentrated near the town, particularly as the tide comes in. However, there will always be room further along the beach in front of the dunes.
