Perranporth village, Cornwall

Perranporth

Perranporth is a large village located on the north coast of Cornwall. Resembling a small town, Perranporth lies eleven miles northwest of Truro, in Perranzabuloe parish.

Now almost entirely catering for the tourist, Perranporth was once a mining village with tin, lead, silver and iron ore found nearby.

The most prominent feature of Perranporth is the three mile long sandy beach. Surfers, windsurfers and even sand yachts may be seen utilising the beach to the maximum. The fine 'Watering Hole' bar as well as numerous inns and cafes offer refreshment. In 2000, to mark the Milennium, a large sundial was erected above the beach near Droskyn Point. Please be aware it tells the time in Cornish Time, which is 20 minutes ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.
