Where is Portreath?
The Cornish village of Portreath extends along both sides of a stream valley which centres around Portreath Harbour and beach. Portreath prospered from its harbour, exporting Cornish Tin Ore and importing coal for the local mining industry. The fishing community was also very active and continues into the present day by providing shelter for fishing boats. The original loading ramp can still be seen in the village. Some of the old tram-roads, used for transporting ore from the mines have been made into cycle paths and you can cycle from Portreath on the North coast to Devoran on the South Coast of Cornwall.

West of the harbour entrance and breakwater are two sandy beaches which are popular with surfers and holiday makers alike. Body boarders turn up in force at high tide on big swells to surf the harbour wall or vortex as it is known. All activities are watched over by the local Surf and Life Saving Club which is situated on the beach. The Gulls Roost and Sea Spray Holiday Cottages include Sea Views across the entire bay. The views are truly magnificent, and the experience can’t be matched by watching television.
