Mawgan Porth in Cornwall UK

Hidden half-way between the popular beaches of Newquay and Padstow, a quiet village blooms…
…Mawgan Porth.
Protected on both sides by towering cliffs and rocks, this secluded hamlet is blessed with a virgin beach...a beach with soft sun-bleached sand and crystal blue water...

Sunset on the beach
The raw beauty of Mawgan Porth begins with its delightfully dulcet beach. With its fine white sand, pretty pools amidst the rocks and bewitching sunsets, the beach is an idyll of peace and tranquillity.
The beach is also perfect if you want a bit of adventure. The surf here is just right for first-time surfers, and the surf-school on the beach will help you ride the glorious waves.

If you want a break from crowded beach holiday-spots, then Mawgan Porth is the retreat for you.

The Cliffs and the Countryside. The natural terrain of Mawgan Porth is fascinating. Weathering the elements for centuries, ancient cliffs stand in guard of the tiny town. Many dark caves lie hidden in them. Hiking on these ragged rocks and exploring the caves is definitely an exhilarating experience!

The hamlet of Mawgan Porth is a lush green valley lying between the "hard rock" and the "deep sea". And this is one place you'd love to be in! Walking though the quaint streets of the village and setting off on the 'Vale of Lanherene' trail, which leads through the picturesque countryside and ends at the enchanting 'Carnanton Woods', is a perfect treat!

Local charm
Situated only four miles from the Newquay airport, Mawgan Porth happily offers you its warm services and charming wares. You can take it up on its offers of tennis, golf, squash, pitch & putt, crazy golf and saunas & spas. And shopping for souvenirs in the little shops, which sit prettily among the gaggle of slate-roofed houses, is an absolute delight! Be sure to take a peek inside 'Betty's', 'Surf King', and the charming little supermarket in the Magwan Porth garage.
