Originally, hundreds of years ago, in the Middle Ages, this enchanting sea-side resort was an industrious tin and copper mining village. Now-a-days, it is a place of pure pleasure that in the summer welcomes thousands of visitors from all over.

Perranporth has a spectacular golden sandy beach which stretches for about 3 miles along the coast, and at times is approximately half a mile wide. It offers a safe haven for sun-worshippers and is a delight for little children who happily spend hours building castles in the sand. It is a popular place for surfing and yachting.

Nearby attractions include; World in miniture at Goonhavern, Wheal Coates and St.Agnes Wonderland.
