Tonga, situated within yards of the South West Coast Path on the spectacular north Cornwall coast, provides superior accommodation for a family or friends sharing.  This contemporary reverse-level property has been designed to make the most of the awe-inspiring views across the bay stretching from St Ives to St Agnes and across the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean.  The stylish, spacious interior has been finished to a high standard with oak flooring, underfloor heating and a double set of bi-fold doors in the living room providing a splendid outlook from sunrise to sunset. Feature skylights have been carefully positioned to enjoy the fresh Cornish sea air.

Head out onto the coast path where you can walk north towards St Agnes or south towards Portreath. Stop for lunch at the trendy Blue Bar on the beach at Porthtowan. This stretch of coastline is famous for its surfing, long sandy beaches, the coast to coast cycle trail and the mining heritage with former engine houses and mine stacks dotted around the landscape. A 15 mile drive is all it takes to cross the county to explore the gentle south coast around Falmouth with its wonderful maritime scene.

Local Area

Located within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Porthtowan is probably best known for its Blue Flag award winning, golden sandy beach (lifeguarded in summer) backed by large dunes and dramatic cliffs. The coastal footpath skirts over the cliffs to St Agnes and Portreath with spectacular views across the sea.

This small, seaside village is situated right in the heart of Cornwall's Heritage Mining Area and ideally located mid-way between St Ives and Newquay, making it a convenient base for exploring all which Cornwall has to offer.

The facilities within the village itself include cafes, beach/ surf shops, water sports equipment hire, a children's play park, large public car park and other local amenities.

Please note a seasonal dog ban applies on Porthtowan beach from Easter to end of September.


The property is of very high standard, location of property was in my opinion one of the best in Porthtowan. The views from master bedroom & lower lounge are absolutely breathtaking. Dr S P Backhouse - 24th April 2017
