The Blue Bar - Porthtowan

The Blue Bar - Porthtowan

The Blue BarEast Cliff Beach Road, Porthtowan Cornwall. TR4 8AW

The minute you turn down the small road towards Porthtowan beach you feel like you are on holiday. You will notice how sand appears on the road verges, blown from behind the bleached wooden fence posts holding back the small dunes. Here, sitting at the base of a rugged cliff, right on the sandy Blue Flag beach, lies The Blue Bar.

Established in 1999 this beach side café, bar, restaurant and music venue is well loved by the locals. The large terrace and bay window seating area face the beach and are excellent for watching surfers and the sunset.  Brunch, lunch and dinner are all simple and classic, the coffee is barista made and the vibe is most definitely laid back.

The Blue Bar puts on open mic nights, comedy nights and has a cracking live music line up, running from April to September. If you’re wondering how the surf is looking today, you can look via their webcam, dogs are welcome and there is a pool table and plenty of space inside for large families and groups. Just 30 minutes from both Newquay and St. Ives this bar is well worth a trip. If the weather isn’t great for sunbathing, and you don’t fancy a surf, take a hike up the cliff towards Chapel Porth Beach, about 45 minutes away by foot. The cliff top views are spectacular and the little National Trust take away serves the famous ‘hedgehog’ ice cream – well worth the walk!
