The Parish of Portreath spans a stretch of the North coast between Porthtowan and Gwithian, bordering with the village of Illogan to its South. Its closest towns are Redruth and Camborne.
Our community is very close with many events and gatherings throughout the year.
At the heart of the Parish is the village of Portreath with its beautiful beach.
In the past, Portreath prospered from its busy harbour, exporting tin ore and importing coal for the mining industry. Fishing also played a major role in village life, and continues into the present.
We hope this website can tell you more about our Parish, and the service that the Parish Council carries out here.
Today, Portreath is a very popular tourist destination and the village welcomes our visitors every year. Evidence of our industrial and war time past can still be found all over the Parish. Surfers flock here, as well as family’s looking for a friendly relaxed holiday.
