Mawgan Porth is popular with surfers and with its rock pools, is also perfectly suited for family days by the sea. Local estate agents and the tourist information bureau receive many enquiries regarding self catering Mawgan seaside cottages for holidays and short breaks.

                                                              The most beautiful location. Five mins walk to the beach, local shop and pub 10 mins walk away. A body boarder/surfer's paradise - plus the lifeguards were always present. The apartment was perfect for our requirements (2 adults plus 2 kids). It was perfectly well equipped and tastefully decorated. We had a fabulous time here :-)
