Duporth beach is a private, sandy beach around 2 miles from St Austell on the mid-south Cornwall coast. Above the long, narrow beach runs the South West Coast Path, providing walkers with access to Carlyon Bay and beyond to the east, and Porthpean and beyond to the south.
The beach can be accessed only via the South West Coast Path, the cliffs along which can be fairly steep. Nearby Charlestown is home to the popular Shipwreck and Heritage Centre, where the nearest car park is situated. Dogs are not permitted on the beach.
The surrounding area provides a range of holiday accommodation options including holiday cottages in St Austell, the nearest major town.
Two of Cornwall's finest attractions are within easy travelling distance. The world famous Eden Project lies 3 miles to the north of Duporth. To the south, around 4 miles away, are The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
