Caerhays Beach

Do you remember a day on the beach when you were a child? No speed boats, no jet skis, just a shop selling ice creams, snacks and beach toys with plenty of space to run and play. Well that could still be Porthluney beach today.

Caerhays Beach Hut and shop is  run by Jan Pheasey and her team of helpers, Open Daily from 10.30am (weather permitting). between April and late September.


Serving:  Cornish Coffee, Twinnings Tea.  Fruit Juices and Fizzy Drinks.  Locally made Cornish Pasties. West Country Burgers and Sausages, Freshly made Sandwiches, Baguettes and Salads.  Callestick Ice Cream, Scrumptious Homemade Cakes, Cornish Biscuits.

The Shop is well stocked selling:  Body Boards, Wet Suits/Shoes, Ball Games and Buckets and Spades and painting and cards by Local Artists.

The large car park (charge payable May to September) means there will be no problem with parking and no walking miles to get to the sand and, as long as it's kept on a lead, even your dog is welcome.

Due to the costs incurred to re-build the sea defences after the damages caused  during the winter storms of 2013/14 we will be charging an extra 50p for car parking for this season. Thank you!

In the winter an ideal spot for surfers, the perfect starting point for a walk along the cliffs, somewhere to spend a relaxing couple of hours with your fishing rod or just to sit in you car and listen to the sea. This beach has it all. Whether, basking in the summer sun or wild and windswept in the winter, Porthluney Cove overlooked by the castle has something for everyone and is the perfect family Cornish Beach.

Please be aware that there is no overnight parking on the beach and the gates are locked at 8.00pm each evening.
