With the South West Coast path literally running through our village and beautiful moorland and countryside walks nearby, Porthleven is a popular place for walkers to stay. Our local pubs and cafe’s make a welcome place to stop after a day of exploring and refuel.
The coast path is easily accessible for day walks. Popular walks include Porthleven to Praa Sands (about 2 hours) or you could walk all the way to St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. To the west, the coast path will take you past Gunwalloe, towards Church Cove (you will recognise from many a Poldark scene!) and to Poldhu Cove. Find out more on the South West Coast Path website.
Some of Cornwall’s wildest landscape exists just 20 minutes from Porthleven on the Lizard Peninsular.
