Promoting sustainable tourism at Porthcothan Bay

Porthcothan Surf Forecast

This Surf forecast actually covers Constantine, Treyarnon and Mawgan Porth and Polzeath which all work in similar winds. Porthcothan will be roughly the same except almost always smaller, messier and the banks (what banks) won’t usually work. Also covering Harlyn Bay which will need a south or south west wind and will probably be working when this forecast is showing onshore for the other spots.

You may have gathered from this lukewarm appraisal that Porthcothan is definitely not the hottest surf spot but it’s great family fun and very, very occasionally the surf’s awesome.
