Chapel Porth beach is just 15 minutes from Tehidy Holiday Park. This wonderful National Trust Cove is best at low tide and it is a real hidden gem. At the top of the valley you can find John who on Thursday, Friday and Saturday has fresh fish from the local boats and lovely freshly cooked crabs and lobsters. The beach itself has a cafe and toilet block by the car park. The mining buildings perched on the cliffs create a wonderful atmosphere. The coastal footpath along this stretch of coast is definitely worth exploring if you are all sand castled or surfed out.
