Beach Hire at Porthpean Beach

Kayak Hire from Porthpean beach

Beach Hire

Hire a kayak or stand-up paddle board and take to the water to experience the scenery around a part of the Cornish coast. Porthpean beach near St. Austell is a protected wildlife area and boasts nesting sea birds, seals, natural arches and caves.

Our beach shed at Porthpean beach operates throughout the summer months from 10am, weather permitting.  We operate on a first-come, first-served basis so head down and speak to one of our team members about your requirements.

Back rests (kayaks only), paddles and buoyancy aids are all provided. You will also be provided with a paddle and safety briefing.

New for 2021 – Mega SUP!  This Mega Stand-Up Paddleboard can hold up to 8 people and is available for hire from the beach.

We are weather dependent – a sunny day doesn’t always provide the best conditions for being out on the water. If the weather is deemed unsuitable, for safety reasons we reserve the right to keep our beach hire closed or to close early.  We advise you to call the centre on the morning you wish to hire to check opening times.
