Porthallow, Cornwall, Visitor & Tourism Guide



Quick Links
AONB: Cornwall
Select Towns & Villages: Lizard, Coverack, Gweek, Mullion, Porthleven, Falmouth, Helford

Glorious coastline
Pretty coastal village on the east coast of The Lizard Peninsula.

Porthallow's the midway point of the South West Coast Path National Trail. Minehead and Poole are both 315m/517km away. As you would expect, there's superb coastal walking on this glorious stretch of coastline.

Beautiful beach
There's plenty of parking behind a lovely private beach but donations are requested. The beach is an arc of pebble and shingle with rocky cliffs at either end.

The local area
To the north of Porthallow, we'd recommend a visit to St Anthony-in-Menage and the Helford River and Estuary. To the south, try Coverack with its harbour and beach. To the south west, visit Lizard Point and Kynance Cove. Inland, walk Goonhilly Downs which is part of The Lizard National Nature Reserve.

A little further away, but still an easy day trip, try Porthleven and St Michael's Mount. To explore South and West Cornwall fully, we'd suggest trips to St. Ives and Falmouth. A boat trip to St. Mawes is great.
