Porthleven is a bustling fishing village, just outside Helston. As well as a picture perfect harbour, Porthleven has its own beach and a vibrant mix of shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs.

A number of fishermen still operate from the harbour and visitors wishing to try their hand at catching some fish of their own can take advantage of the organised fishing trips run by local operators.

Porthleven also has a fantastic cycle hire shop. With bikes available to suit riders of all ages, it offers a perfect way to explore the area.

In April, Porthleven hosts its own extremely popular Food and Drink Festival, and during the holiday season there is a harbour market three days a week selling local crafts and foods.
