Maenporth is a seaside hamlet with one of the four beaches associated with Falmouth in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is approximately two miles to the west of Falmouth. The cove faces east and gives distant views on Pendennis Castle and the lighthouse on St Anthony Head. To the north of the cove are the dangerous rocks of Newporth Head. The coast road, between Mawnan and the Boslowick area of Falmouth, runs alongside the beach. Beyond the road is a tidal estuary supporting a range of birdlife, including herons and Little Egrets. There is also a coastal path which links it with the Swanpool and Gyllyngvase beaches of Falmouth.
