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.

  1. Situated above the Shipwreck Centre, the Bosuns Diner has splendid views over Charlestown and is the ideal place to stop for a snack and cup of tea after your visit to the museum. The “Bosuns” menu is one of the best in the area, be it for a snack or a full meal, there is also a very comfortable bar area. As with all the Centre’s facilities there is disabled access. The Bosuns Diner is also available for wedding and party functions.
