Superb surfing, an immense stretch of gilded sand, a natural sea water swimming pool, a river that’s perfect for paddling, high dunes filled with wildlife and flowers, and a top notch beachfront watering hole...it’s no wonder that Perranporth Beach, near Newquay, is one of Cornwall’s favourite beaches.
If you like the sound of having all this on your doorstep, Perran Sands Holiday Park is the place to come. The park has direct access to Penhale Sands and Perranporth Beach, as well as its own surf school offering lessons for all abilities, and all the necessary equipment for hire.
If surfing’s not your thing, don’t worry; you’ll be spoiled for choice with the range of sports, activities and entertainment for all ages on this action-packed Haven site. The facilities at Perran Sands Holiday Park include fab free kids’ clubs, indoor and outdoor pools (the former with a head-spinning flume), a swanky adventure golf course, mini ten-pin bowling, a new multi-sports court, and a good range of dining options.
Young Bear Grylls in the making can get stuck into the wildly entertaining Nature Rockz activities run at the park. Learn all sorts from bushcraft skills to building shelters and making campfires, and kids could even get the chance to try pond dipping, beachcombing or venture out on a bug safari. Most activities are free but a small charge may apply to some.
There’s also a fantastically varied programme of free family entertainment across two venues on site, including the high tech stage of the newly refurbished Live Lounge: tribute bands, competitions, circus acts, comedians, dancing, magic and more.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Many of Cornwall’s must-see tourist attractions are within easy reach of Perran Sands Holiday Park: start with a wander through the awe-inspiring biospheres of the Eden Project; check out King Arthur’s stamping ground Tintagel Castle; gaze out onto the Atlantic horizon from Land’s End; or get inspired at the Tate Gallery in St. Ives.
For rugged recreation, there are some amazing coastal walks in the area, or you could head up into Bodmin Moor, or venture into Devon to visit Dartmoor, where you’ll also find atmospheric Castle Drogo, Buckfast Abbey (a stunning Benedectine monastery) and the woodland cascade of Becky Falls. The entrance fee to the latter covers a great range of family fun, including animal encounters of the cuddly (and less cuddly) kind, indoor crafts, letterboxing and nature trails.
