Attraction Information

St Agnes Beaches

St Agnes is blessed with 4 quite individual beaches, so for an epic beach day you can explore the lot or pick and choose between them if it suits. Either way you're in for a nice day, especially if you brought the sunshine with you!

Porthtowan Beach is vast and sandy, popular during high season mainly with families and surfers. It's only recommended for experienced surfers, so they're usually good to watch! Good for sand-castling and family beach games and safe for summer swimming when there are lifeguards on hand between 10am and 6pm.

The pebble strewn Trevaunance Cove is closest to St. Agnes itself if you want to keep the local facilities close but still get a good beach walk in. It's great for rock-pooling so be sure to bring your nets and buckets along, plus there are annual events held on this stretch including an RNLI day in August and the Easter dog races! The Cove and Chapel Porth share the same lifeguard schedule (but not the same lifeguards) as Porthtowan.

Chapel Porth Beach is a National Trust property (so even heavier on the natural wildlife in the surrounding patches) and boasts a nice coastal cafe to refuel at. This is also where you can find The World Belly Boarding Championship every September! Fantastic fun to watch if you can stand the crowds and keep hold of your munchkins.

There is also Trevellas Porth which is quieter and more secluded, popular with fishermen and guided or experienced snorkelers. There is no lifeguard cover here, so it's not recommended for families if you're planning on entering the water. Great for escaping the crowds further along though if you're happy on the sand!
