The Family had a Holiday home at Perronporth when I was Lad...and like Mollers said,a definite NoNo!...it's the Classic Cornish Surf Beach,very exposed and always some breaking Waves.

Hi all.

No slipway just gravel into very tidal shallow creek.
mind you this was a few years back.
There were locals doing the same.

I agree about the surf. I would personally go to south Cornwall with the boat for days out.
it's not very wide down there!

Hi
Think i will give it a mis taking the boat to this part of cornwall, like everone says its very risky due to the type of holiday beeches,swimmers and surfers, beside i dont think i could live with myself if something went wrong, or not being able to recover the boat. big thanks for all the replies and advice :o) will now look into some places south of cornwall.
cheers Ark

it's only 30 mins to the south coast where it's much more boating friendly.
have you booked and are you camping ark?

Gawd!


The north coast is very nice.

You and Ribandpikeyvan could camp here for a few days Welcome to Malcolm Drew Ltd Products
It's very handy for P/porth and a bit nicer than he's used to.

RIBase
If you drift North there is good beach launching at Port Issac and Port Gaverne.

Boscastle is great with a good slipway but only 2 hours either side, same for Bude.

Padstow and Rock both have slipways as does St Ives - I think.

hi R&M
no haven't booked anywhere yet, do prefer statics to camping tho. i dont have to take the boat but good if i can, trying to get into fishing at the mo. anyway i would consider other places i have a 2 year old son so more for him than myself. just looked at some of the later posts and looked into some of the places mentioned, they all look good

Hi.
look at www.pentewansands.com
between st austell and mevagissy
the site has its own private beach, swimming pool, club house etc.
Tourers, statics and I think log cabins.

They launch the boat off the beach with a tractor 20 a time, but if you dont need the tractor it's free.
It's not a bad place at all
