Chapelporth is a great little cove on the North Cornish coast. At high tide there is a lovely little cove with pebbles at the top of the beach and sand at the water line. At low water the cove opens out to a beautiful sandy beach that you can walk all the way along to Porthtowan, but please note the tide can be deceptive; make sure you know the timings and leave plenty of time!
The view from the coast path is stunning and the heath covered cliffs give way to panoramic views across the sea. Mainly owned by the National Trust, this dynamic Cornish landscape is a haven for wildlife, sea birds, insects and marine mammals can often be seen from the coast path and beach.
This family friendly walk is great for the dogs and evidence of the Cornish mining industry is dotted along this section of the coast.
Please note that dogs are not allowed on the beach between Easter Day and 31st September.
