The parish's church town is Perranzabuloe hamlet but the largest settlement in the parish is Perranporth. Other settlements include Bolingey, Callestock, Goonhaven, Mellingy, Mount, Penhallow, Perrancoombe, and Perranwell.

The name of the parish derives from the medieval Latin Perranus in Sabulo meaning Piran in the sand. It refers to Saint Piran (the patron saint of Cornwall) who founded an oratory church in the seventh century near the coast north of Perranporth.

In medieval times the parish of Perranzabuloe was a peculiar of Exeter Cathedral. Perranzabuloe at that time exercised ecclesiastic control of St Agnes: the latter's church was a chapelry of Perranzabuloe. In 1846 St Agnes became a separate ecclesiastical parish.
