Treyarnon lies on the north coast of Cornwall between Newquay and Padstow, just north of Porthcothan. Treyarnon Bay is popular with surfers and has a sandy beach with nearby parking. A lifeguard is on duty here during the summer months. The beach gets very busy in the summer months and nearby are toilets, restaurants and other facilities.
Treyarnon is close to Constantine, Trevone, Harlyn and Porthcothan, which are all popular destinations with good beaches. At the mouth of the bay are Trethias Island and Treyarnon Point, both clearly visible from the top of the cliffs on the coastal path. The headland to the south has several ancient settlement sites and a tumulus. To the north is Constantine Bay, which is also very good for surfing.
For those wishing to stay in the area there are numerous camping and caravan sties around Porthcovan as well as various Bed and Breakfast (B&B) places. It is advisable to book ahead, especially in the high season.
