Past the sandy shores of Perran Bay, Perranporth is one of Cornwall's most popular seaside spots and becomes extremely busy in high season, though it's easier to escape the crowds here than in Newquay. The swells off this 3-mile stretch of beach attract swarms of surfers, too. The best times to visit are the beginning and end of summer. Enchanting coastal walks extend along the dunes and cliffs.
