Porthleven lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which has the same status and protection of a National Park. It is the most southerly port on the Island of Great Britain and doubtless, Porthleven would have remained a small fishing inlet to this day had not there been an overriding need, in the early nineteenth century, for a harbour of refuge along this forbidding shore to which ships could run in times of distress. In the 1850's major improvements were carried out to the harbour and the handsome structure seen today dates from this time. 

One of Porthleven's most recognisable buildings is the Bickford-Smith Institute next to the pier and harbour entrance. With a tower of 70 feet high, it resembles a church but is currently used as a snooker club and houses the town council offices. The building has featured in an episode of the TV detective series Wycliffe. Today Porthleven is well known as one of the best surfing spots in Great Britain. Powerful swells often exceeding 2 metres break on the shallow reef that was shaped when the harbour was changed in the 1950's.
