   Porthcothan Bay is situated just a few miles south of the busy harbour town of Padstow on the stunning North Cornwall coast. Porthcothan is a lovely sandy bay with a small stream, running across a fine golden sandy beach, that is sheltered by sand dunes and craggy headlands. At low tide there are rock pools and other nooks and crannies to poke around in.

Porthcothan is part of the "seven bays for seven days" grouping of beaches. These include Constantine, Trevone, Harlyn and Treyarnon which are all very close by.

The headland and cliffs to the north of Porthcothan are owned and protected by the National Trust, which makes for plenty of wildlife and a diverse flora and fauna. From here Porthcothan affords stunning views towards Trevose Head and the lighthouse.

Porthcothan

To the south of Porthcothan you are a relatively short work along the coast path from Porth Mear, Bedruthan Steps...and the Borough of Restormel. Off shore of Porthcothan there are several little islands to the left, called Trescore Islands and to the right is Will's rock, and slightly further north are Minnows Islands and Fox cove.

The views along the coast of North Cornwall are absolutely stunning and Porthcothan Bay is no exception. The access to Porthcothan beach is from the main road and car park or from the coast path which follows the headland.

Porthcothan is a dog friendly beach. 

The beach entrance, where a public telephone and shop are located, is opposite the car park and toilets.     

Porthcothan is normally not really associated with decent and consistent surf, more for bathing in the sun or the sea.

Lifeguards patrol this beach from May 22nd till September 31st.
