Behind the Porthleven beach are the sea walls which were built to protect the cliffs in Porthleven from further erosion. During low tide the beach extends all the way past Loe Bar. At high tide the sea breaks against the cliffs so you need to walk on the coast path.

There are many holiday cottages situated above the Porthleven beach. You get excellent, panoramic sea views across Mounts Bay and the beaches and cliffs near Porthleven form many of these self-catering holiday cottages.

Pictures below show the outer harbour, popular with experienced surfers and bodyboarders. Porthleven Institute (pictured centre) is next to the pier and beach eastern mouth of the harbour.
