We had an excellent meal at Taste, with good service and a varied (mainly seafood) menu.The price was reasonable for the quality of food received and there was a nice ambience.

Hidden Treasure

This delightful little restaurant is a gem, we were really warmly welcomed in by the very attentive waitress. It only seats around 25 people, which adds to its appeal for me, it's beautifully decorated in a contemporary style. We called in for lunch - and were not disappointed with the freshly made crab sandwiches we indulged in! I would definitely visit again - maybe next time for dinner, the menu sounded lovely and all the food that was brought out looked fabulous, very reasonably priced too! Be sure to make a booking as my guess is they get quite busy!

Camerons Cakes (1 mile)

Gillian sells her homemade cakes daily from an honesty stall outside the entrance to the farm. You can either choose from what's on offer or ring in advance to order cakes for special occasions. People travel from miles around to sample these delights and we are sure you won't be disappointed!

Yum Yum Tum!

Is Cameron Cakes worth a visit? You betcha! Absolutely delicious cakes and fudge from this fab stall - never has a sign been more welcome - CAKE it says. "cake?!?" we cry, almost crashing the landrover. Fruit cake, (I don't even like fruit cake but this is beautiful), Apple cake , Coffee and Walnut cake, Banana cake - all of them just gorgeous. We went back twice for more. The fudge is also delicious, dark or white chocolate with raspberries were on offer when I was there - I bought most of it to take home - and in a fit of generosity even ... *gasp*... gave some of it to other people! At time of writing I am down to my last piece ... *single tear*. Also now I'm home local cake is not living up to my suddenly high standards. Yum Yum Tum as my niece would say.

Perranporth Beach (3 ¼ miles)

Perranporth is a large, sandy beach, over two miles long, with good surfing conditions. The beach is backed by extensive sand dunes and a nice walk can be found through the dunes to St Piran's Cross and the ruins of St Piran's Oratory. It's also on the South West Coast Path.

Family Beach

Lovely beach, if you walk a bit further round its less busy and loads of room for the kids to run around. The only problem we occurred was some people not controlling their dogs, mind the majority were well behaved.

Amazing Beach!

This beach and the surrounding area are great! If you don't fancy getting your feet covered in sand then the benches and grass areas overlooking the beach are great to sit and have a picnic. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Superb for the Family

This is a great beach the whole family can enjoy. Three miles of sand. Great for surfing, sandcastle building, lifeguarded swimming areas and easy access to nearby facilities including plenty of places to hire or buy a wetsuit. Can get crowded on sunny days in the summer.
On windy days the nearby Trevaunance Cove (South) or Holywell (North) can often be more sheltered.
Dogs can be walked on the beach here year round.
Nudists from Army Camp lurk at the far North End.
