The bay marks the start of what is known as the Seven Bays heading north towards Padstow. These include Treyarnon Bay, Porthcothan Bay, Constantine Bay, Booby's Bay, Mother Ivey's Bay, Harlyn Bay and Trevone Bay.

Porthcothan Bay has a seasonal beach shop but for day to day needs there are further amenities 2.3 miles away in the village of St Merryn.

The town offers a variety of shops together with primary, secondary and Sixth Form education, cinema, numerous sports and social clubs and access to the popular Camel Cycle Trail. This famous cycle track links the picturesque town of Padstow along a route which follows the Camel Estuary. The estuary itself is a haven for watersports enthusiasts including sailing, waterskiing and surfing. The picturesque town of Padstow is 4.8 miles from the property and has a number of fine restaurants including Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant. There is a regular pedestrian ferry service giving access to the beaches of Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Rock. Access to the A30 can be gained at Bodmin. This trunk road connects the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is a superb range of shopping facilities, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and the Midlands, access to the M5 motorway network and well respected Exeter International Airport. Six miles to the south of the property is Newquay Airport which provides a number of scheduled flights to both domestic and international destinations.
