Beaches & Coastal paths

One of our great advantages is that we are equi-distant between north and south coasts! In other words, you can be in either Fowey or Padstow in less than half an hour! Those who know Cornwall will already be aware of the endless choice of fantastic sandy beaches and coast paths all along the north coast. These are stunning beaches – the equal of anywhere in the world – and they’re almost on our doorstep! Surfing beaches can be found at Polzeath (the nearest), Trevone, Harlyn, Constantine, Treyarnon and, most famously of all, Watergate Bay – as well as Fistral and others in the Newquay area. In between these are just as many other safe, sandy beaches, including Daymer Bay – ideal for younger children because of it’s gently shelving beach.

If beaches are not your thing, then you’ll love the delightful sheltered harbours, fishing villages and sailing centres in places like Rock, Padstow, Port Isaac & Port Gaverne, Boscastle, Fowey, Mevagissey, Polperro and Looe – they’re all just a short drive away! And, of course, there’s an equally endless choice of absolutely stunning coast paths to follow – you can find full details of these with our tourist information. We’ll be delighted to recommend our favourites!
