If rock pools are a prerequisite for your family holidays in Cornwall, start your search in Mawgan Porth. This glorious west facing beach between Padstow and Newquay is brimming with rock pools and caves to delight the seaside explorer.
Depending on the company you keep or the circles you move in, you may be surprised to find that Mawgan Porth is as renowned for its surfing holidays as it is for its walking holidays. There’s no disputing the pull of the waves. Yet the coastal path along this stretch of Cornish coastline is spectacular and takes in part of the famed South West Coast Path too.
Many Mawgan Porth holiday cottages are also pet friendly because the beach here is dog friendly all year round. With fish and chips and a pub on hand, you can avoid sand in your sandwiches too. For self-catering holidays in Mawgan Porth look no further.
