From the campsite you can walk to the beach on an old mining path through the valley. It takes about 15 minutes. Please note it is a steep climb back up to the campsite.

With direct access to the South West Coast Path, and sitting in a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, Porthtowan and the St Agnes Parish are a haven for walkers of all ages and abilities. Paths are well marked and maintained, and whether you fancy a coastal stomp, a gentle amble from pub to pub, or a cross-country ramble, there’s something for you. There are lots of free walks which can be downloaded from St Agnes Forum.

Can I book surf lessons?

Porthtowan is one of the top surfing spots in the UK. You can book a lesson at Porthtowan Surf School, or hire a body board from Tris Surf Shop for hours of fun in the waves. We recommend hiring instead of buying the cheap polystyrene boards, they are not good for the environment! If you’re looking for lessons in St Agnes, Breakers Surf School run classes from Trevanuance Cove.

Can I hire a bike?

If you don’t want to bring your own bike, you can hire one from Aggie Cycles. They have a great range of bikes and will deliver them right to the Eco Park!

Can I book a kayaking trip?

The dramatic cliffs which line the coast are best explored on a kayak. Koru kayaking run guided tours and know all the secret spots only locals know about!
