Padstow’s beaches are amongst the finest in Cornwall and the UK at large. The texture is a soft fine white sand. Here are our recommendations.

Constantine Bay

A popular surfer’s beach that faces west, straight into the Atlantic and its currents. Although excellent for surfers, swimmers may face some difficulty with the current and the ragged coastline that surrounds it. Lifeguards are on patrol during peak times.

Harlyn Bay

More popular for swimmers given that it’s shielded from the majority of the Atlantic, but also a popular spot for sitting on the beach and resting- given the length and width of the fine uninterrupted sand.

Hawker’s Cove

One of the most northerly and most quiet of Padstow’s beaches, Hawker’s is ideal for the fine stroll between the flat fields and the long unending sand.

Mother Ivey’s Bay

Just around the corner from Harlyn Bay a quiet sandy beach with private access from Mother Ivey’s Caravan park.


One of the most beautiful and unspoilt of the local beaches. Tregirl’s is ideal for a stroll between the fields and the long unending sand.

Georges Well

A short drive from Padstow is the beautiful family beach of Trevone. Perfect for families with safe bathing and intriguing Rocky Beach with its’ endless rock pools full of marine life.

Trevone Bay

On the opposite side of Trevose Head next to Constantine Bay another family favourite beach with a large sandy beach and safe bathing.
