- Great beach - especially during the summer. Surfed there during the autumn when porthowan was crowded - 8ft and didn't have to fight for a wave. But beware of clamping during the summer - not fun when u come in from a great session to find car clamped - not a happy bunny.

behind the island rock thing - behind the rock at holywell which looks like its off the end of the headland at penhale from the town end of perranporth is some kind of break probably reef. only seen it break a handfull of times and have lived here all my life. probably needs a bigger swell than the cribber, 8-10 foot at least i would guess, maybe more. dont know how ridable it is. dont know if anyone has tried. fucking long way to paddle so a boat would be nice, oh and BIG balls. dare you!!
