Where to Drink in Perranporth, Cornwall

In partnership with

bar

Alcatraz

Brewing coffee by day and mixing cocktails by night, this teeny-tiny bar’s sandy location can’t be beaten – it’s plonked right on Perranporth Beach. Any closer to the shore and you’d be balancing a pint on your board while you paddle. Occupying a Second World War shelter that’s been repurposed into a surf shack-style bar, this is a spot for sundowners and a carousel of tappable shots for Instagram.

The Watering Hole

What started life as a humble hut dishing out deckchairs and tinnies in the 70s has grown into a sprawling toes-in-the-sand beach bar spread across Cornwall's best dunes. Its annual Tunes in the Dunes music festival has helped put Perranporth on the map with past rockers including Craig David, Tom Jones and Bananarama. Visiting midweek? Expect a no-fuss, lo-fi affair: pints on the sand serenaded by locals bands.

The Corona 100% Natural Bar

From the 3–7 June 2021, bundle your boards and your gang over to neighbouring St Ives where you’ll find Corona’s 100% Natural Bar pitched up on the sands of Porthminster and gazing out to sea. The bar is made entirely from natural materials – think sand, clay and reclaimed wood – just like Corona is made with 100% natural ingredients. It's the ideal place to disconnect from the past year and reconnect with the beachy surrounds. Better still, once the bar leaves the shores, every element will be reused, recycled or returned to nature so it leaves no trace on the beach. Spots are extremely limited, so book now to avoid missing out.
