Chapel Porth Beach – Wonderful expanse and a National Trust Cafe
Chapel Porth Beach
The large expanse of sand at low tide stretches from St Agnes head to Porthtowan Beach on a low tide. Check tide times before setting off on this walk as the tide comes in very quickly and there is always the danger you could get caught. Check with Lifeguards. Only Rocks at high tide.Rockpools and caves to explore.
National Trust car park and beach cafe serving legendary ‘hedgehog’ ice creams – cornish ice cream, covered in clotted cream and topped with crushed hazelnuts, scrumptious! Hot and cold drinks and good food are also available.
The ruins of the old Wheal Coates tin min look down from the high cliffs, and the walk from here around to St Agnes give stunning views from the coastal path.
Limited parking, with a steep drive down a narrow road to the car park. Rocks and pebbles to walk across to get to the sand.
