About the neighbourhood
Porthtowan village has a relaxed beach vibe and the award winning beach is very popular with families, body boarders and surfers. The beach is lifeguarded in the summer months (Easter, May - September) and there are separate surfing and swimming/bodyboarding areas. Children will love the sea pool hewn into the rocks and the beach also offers great rock pooling. Surf school and hire is available in the village and sea kayaking tours operate from nearby Trevaunance Cove. The Blue Bar and Porthtowan Beach Cafe are great places to watch the sunset over the sea while you enjoy a relaxing drink or dinner. The Blue bar often has live music in the evenings but is family friendly until 9pm, and Porthtown Beach cafe has themed evenings in the summer (eg thai or mexican feast night, Friday burger ...
Getting around
There is a bus stop in the village centre, about a 5 minute walk from Seashells, served by buses from Redruth, Truro and St Agnes. There are mainline train stations in Redruth and Truro, about 20 mins from Porthtowan. By car Porthtowan is an easy journey, about a 10 minute drive from the main A30 through Cornwall.
