Maenporth Beach – Cornwall
Maenporth is another lovely beach near Falmouth to explore and picnic on. Stunning views and sandy shores make this a perfect beach for everyone.
There are rockpool’s to explore and rock faces to traverse and when the tide is low the wreck of the freezer trawler, ‘Ben Asdale’, to discover.
A salt water stream running through the beach ensures that even when the tide takes the sea far out there is somewhere for you to paddle. Younger children will spend hours building dams in the stream, a skill that is passed on through the generations here in Cornwall! Plus, look out for the spooky cave!
‘Lifes a Beach’, cafe is well stocked with beach toys and equipment, a varied menu and a huge ice-cream menu!
At the end of a busy beach day you can watch the evening draw in from the setting of, ‘The Cove Bar & Restaurant‘. Situated directly behind the beach this well known restaurant has a menu packed full of local Cornish produce with an ever changing specials menu.
The beach is accessible via the coastal footpath taken from Swanpool beach, by road and there are buses available from Falmouth Moor.
Charged parking is available on the beach and during busier seasons spaces are made available on land opposite the beach.
Toilets are situated behind the cafe adjacent to the beach.
There is no lifeguard in operation on this beach.NB Visit Falmouth want you to have a great time exploring our coastline but please remember to always check the tide times before heading off, carry a phone and let someone know where you are going. The sea is beautiful but un-predictable too.
