A pay-and-display car park is located directly adjacent to the beach, offering convenient access. The car park can fill up quickly on sunny days or during school holidays, so arriving early is recommended.


From Truro, take the A39 towards Falmouth. At the Treluswell Roundabout, continue on the A39, then follow signs for Maenporth along the B3292 and Maenporth Road. The beach is well signposted from the road, and a car park is located near the beachfront. During peak season, the roads can be busy, so allow extra time for your journey.


Public toilets are available at the Maenporth Beach car park.
