Maenporth Beach

A lovely spot for those with smaller children, Maenporth beach can be found south of Falmouth, a little further along the coast from Swanpool & Gylly beach.


The beach is a sheltered, east-facing sandy beach as it is between two small headlands, approximately . The water here is clean and shallow - kids will simply love it! At low tide the Ben Asdale shipwreck can often be seen.


There is a small beach cafe available and parking is close to the beach (not free).
