Porthleven is a wonderful maritime town, built around its picturesque, historic harbour. It is a truly wonderful holiday location, where the beach is only a few minutes’ walk away from the bustling town centre, which makes it a perfect spot for enjoying charming local boutiques, rock pooling or simply lazing in the warm Cornish sunshine.

Porthleven is also regarded as an increasingly important destination for ‘foodies’ with a tempting array of gastronomic delights across the town’s cafes, pubs and restaurants – and naturally some outstanding fish and chips.
