Cornwall, Portreath.

Portreath Beach, north coast.

Portreath is north of Camborne on the B3301 and B3300, it is a sandy beach which is popular with holiday makers and surfers, You will be restricted to fishing early or late when you will have the beach to yourself. There is a pay and display car park right against the beach with toilets, shops and cafes are a short walk away.
Fishing here is not great but good bass are caught on occasion, dogfish seem to turn up everywhere so one of these is on the cards.. The beach is sandy and snag free in the centre and quite rough ground near the harbour wall. The left hand side of the beach near the rocks is generally snag free.
There is a pier/ harbour arm here but it is closed to fishing; it is possible to fish parts of the harbour that can be reached.
There is a tackle shop in Fore Street, Redruth and one in Camborne,
