Shops and car parks have re-opened, cafes are offering take-aways, and from the 4th July pubs and restaurants will also be open, albeit in slightly new ways. Slowly but surely we are getting back to business. So that you can plan your trips out, we’ve put together a handy guide for the facilities, amenities and services that are open and available.
Public car parks
Public car parks are open. Please see signage in individual car parks for charges. Parking on Perranporth main street is currently disallowed, to allow more space for pedestrians to pass each other. This will be reviewed each week as the summer progresses.
The toilets in the beach car park and by boating lake are currently NOT open.
Lifeguards are on duty on Perranporth beach daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This service is running until 6th September 2020, however the end date will be regularly reviewed, taking government guidelines into account.
Trevaunance Cove is being patrolled from 4th July 2020.
Perranporth Post Office is open six days a week, with their opening hours 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. on Saturday. Closed on Sundays.
Perranporth library is currently not open to the public to be able to the enter the building. They are re-opening on 4th July for people to drop off books only and will be implementing a collection system for picking books up.
There are currently no banking facilities in the village while Lloyds mobile banking is suspended until further notice. Cash machines are available at both Co-op stores, and cash may be withdrawn from the post office counter.
The laundrette on The Gounce will be open form 4th July from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Boots the Chemist and Pharmacy
Boots is open six days a week, including the prescription counter.
Perranporth Country Market
The country market is running on Friday mornings again selling fresh fish and vegetables from the Memorial Hall.
Bathsheba Surf is open for business however they are not hiring any wetsuits, gloves, boots or hoods. Surfboards and body boards can be hired and picked up outside after paying and dropped off outside when finished.
Piran Surf is also open and will be offering board and wetsuit hire from 4th July.
Surf hire and lessons are also available from Ticket to Ride surf school.
Shops re-opened throughout the village on 15th June, selling pasties, ice creams and all your holiday memorabilia. The butchers and the bakery are both open. Healeys Cyder Farm shop and Callestick Ice Cream are both open, with restrictions in place.
There are two Co-ops in Perranporth, one on Station Road and the other at Red House on Boscawen Road, both open 7am to 8pm seven days a week.
We are anticipating a large influx of visitors from 4th July. As these small local shops only have capacity for a few shoppers at a time, it would be appreciated if guests could bring some of their own supplies with them, to avoid long queues and the shelves being emptied.
Avoid the supermarket shop altogether and support Cornish farmers and food producers with veg, dairy, meat and fish boxes from the Cornish Food Box Co.
Pubs and restaurants will be re-opening from the 4th July. These will either be in outdoor areas, or with limited capacity inside and with waiter service or ordering via apps. Most are offering takeaway for collection.
Haddocks End, Browns, and Pickwicks Fish and chips shops are open for takeaways as are Piran Thai, Mei Kitchen, Jaipur and Massala. Pasties and ice-creams are all available in the village, with takeaway coffee & cake is from Alcatraz, by the beach.
