Portreath, meaning 'sandy cove' is becoming more and more popular with holidaymakers. It's location on the west coast means it is within easy access to many of the visitor attracions in this area, including the plethora of heritage sites and a wide range of quality beaches too.


To the south of the harbour, and on the west side of the valley, are the remains of the old cable-worked incline which linked the harbour to the mainline at Carn Brea.


By 1827 Portreath was described as Cornwall's most important port!
