About Perran Sands
Surfers and paragliders are in their element here. Complete with their wetsuits, they’re always out there, having a wild time. This is a lively Park with a great holiday atmosphere and something for everyone including the chic attractions of Newquay, St. Ives or Padstow.
With its long stretches of sandy beach, this location is ideal for family strolls, kids playing and for parents to relax. Also being one of Cornwall’s top surfing beaches, it's great for keen surfers, expert or novice, to practice catching some waves!
Penhale Sands sits behind Perran Sands and together with Perranporth Beach forms a three mile stretch of golden sandy beach with good surfing conditions. Other popular beach activities here include swimming, snorkelling, fishing and sea canoeing (hire is available). Zoning is in place for watersports.
Pleasant walks can be taken through the dune system above the beach to St. Piran's Cross and ruins of St. Piran's Oratory. The beach is part of the Southwest Coastal path. With all the fun of the Park and the golden sandy beach, Perran Sands is hard to resist.
Site of Special Scientific Interest
Penhale is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. This and the Special Area of Conservation both help protect and manage the sand dunes' habitats and wildlife that thrives there. Even within the Park itself you can enjoy some of this wildlife, as well as do your bit to help look after it.
Special Area of Conservation
The wildlife is so special here at Perran Sands that the Dunes have been designated a "Special Area of Conservation" due to the plants and wildlife here, some of which are rare on a European scale.
