The Porthtowan area
100 steps from Porthtowan's Blue Flag award winning beach and within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Gecko Beach sits on one of Cornwall's most popular surfing beaches, with soft golden sand backed by dramatic cliffs. The beach is lifeguarded from May to September and there is a secluded tidal swimming pool on the north side of the bay. Two local surf schools offers tuition and kit hire to all ages and abilities. This friendly coastal community has two pubs (The Blue Bar and The Unicorn), a great café with a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, an ice cream parlour, surf shop, beach gift shop, children's play-park and a well-stocked village store.
Gecko Beach apartment sits in a quiet no-through road that leads directly to the beach and makes an ideal retreat for singles or couples, whether seeking relaxation on the beach or adrenalin in the surf. There are beautiful beach and cliff top walks along the South West Coast Path featuring some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in the UK. Walk a gentle 2.2 km north to Chapel Porth and then reward yourself by indulging in a delicious 'Hedgehog Ice cream' (Cornish ice-cream with a dollop of clotted cream rolled in hazelnuts.) If you extend your walk up the Chapel Porth Valley you can stop for good beer and good food at the Victory Inn. Trevaunance Cove at St Agnes is a worthy walk too - the Driftwood Spar serves traditional award winning ales and ciders. For those seeking peace, tranquillity and solitude, walk south to discover dramatic secret coves such as the exquisite Sally's Bottom. Cycle hire and pony trekking are available within 2km. Further afield, Truro has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Maritime Falmouth features a harbour, four beaches, the Maritime Museum, eateries for all tastes and galleries and boat trips for fishing and water-wildlife safaris.
If you are interested in Mountain Biking, Photography, Geology I may be available to show you around: e-mail me! If I am not leading an adventure travel expedition in Africa / S America / S E Asia I will probably be in Porthtowan in my campervan.

Porthtowan, ir-Renju Unit

The village shop – Very good – especially the delicious brown bread!
The Unicorn – refurbished in 2019. Excellent food. 100 steps from Geckobeach.
The Blue Bar – you can't beat a sundowner looking out over the beach from The Blue!
Porthtowan Beach Café – Quiet option. Very relaxed. Heather will look after you (especially if you mention me). Some of my photo gift cards are available here.
Moomaid of Zennor – Lovely ice cream. I like the honeycomb one.
Surfing – Instruction and gear hire from Tris, the shop next to the Beach Café or from the hut outside the Unicorn.
Swimming – If you don’t fancy the sea, try the tidal pool – at the bottom of the cliffs on the North side of the beach (right side as you look out to sea).
Horse riding – Turn right at the end of the road and drive uphill to Mount Pleasant - turn left where there is a sign to the Eco Park
Eco Park - also worth a visit
Victory Inn – Great local pub with good beer and good food. Less touristy than the Blue Bar or Unicorn. Turn left at the end of the road out of Porthtowan and drive up the hill. Alternatively walk there; follow the cliff path towards north towards Chapel Porth and then turn right up the Chapel Porth valley. NB this is the nearest reliable spot for mobile phone reception.

When I am not on the beach in Porthtowan I am a freelance Adventure Travel Expedition Leader and Travel Photographer. I have led expeditions in Africa, Asia and South America. I have written a book about my adventures: 'When The Going Gets Tough... It Makes A Good Bar Story!' The best bar stories evolve from crises and the opportunities they create, so this is a collection of my favourite misadventures. My exploits, arising from a lifelong quest for adventure travel and adrenaline, include caving, climbing, biking, hiking and backpacking in over 70 countries. What sets this book apart is that it describes the extraordinary adventures of an ordinary man: how many authors have squeezed maggots out of their eyebrows and been peed on by silver-back mountain gorillas? Available on Amazon.
