Crabs, cliffs and coastline

A beach for every day of the week and a new activity each time. Sail the estuary, drop a crabline into the harbour, ride the waves, coasteer the cliffs or canoe the Camel. Pedal the Camel Trail, get lost in the gardens at Heligan or visit Rick’s for the ultimate takeaway.

Explore the Camel Estuary

Surf the waves on Polzeath, Harlyn, Booby’s Bay or Newquay. Water ski from Rock Bicycle to Padstow, Wadebridge or on Bodmin Moor – the possibilities are endless at The Slate Beach House.

The estuary is a paradise for sailing or water skiing. The Camel School of Seamanship, RYA and AALA licensed, offers sailing lessons for every level or you can rent your own Cornish Shrimper or Wayfare.

You can visit Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac as they are close by or for relaxation pack your picnic and lie on white sand beaches at Padstow and Daymer Bay. Heaven!

Go mackerel fishing or sailing from Rock or Padstow and see who makes the catch of the day. Stop for a spot of lunch at the famous Rick Stein restaurant or spend an evening exploring the local bars and pubs sampling the local ales.

Walking is a way of life in the picturesque Cornwall town of Padstow. The South West Coast Path, Britain’s longest footpath, stretches along the coast and, via ferry, across the Camel River so there is lots to explore.
