Blue Bar Porthtowan Cornwall

Over the years Blue Bar has become one of the best known bars on the north coast. The surf is great at Porthtowan and as the Blue is perched just a few strides from the beach, it’s a great place to hang out.  If you’re inside without a window seat it’s a fairly non-descript place, worryingly reminiscent of Summer Bay. But it’s a family and dog friendly bar, there’s seating outside for the summer months and three bay windows with great vistas for more blustery days.

There’s a bar menu and they do good coffee and hot chocolate – which is what we tend use the place for after a long walk on the beach. Either that or a cold glass of white in the summer after roasting on the cliffs.

Porthtowan Beach has a seasonal summer dog ban, but you can head round the corner or scramble down the cliff to Lushington, which is – in our opinion – an even better spot in the height of the season.
