Staying nearby, went for a long walk along the beaches, nice and clean, blue waters, plenty of lifeguards nearby, when you have the weather you cannot beat Cornwall beaches.
Within walking distance of other great beaches eg: Trevone and Constantine.
Trevone Bay Beach Padstow 21.1 km away
#4 of 22 Outdoor Activities in Padstow
Away from the beach, climb the hill and the view along this rugged coastline, interspersed with amazing beaches, is pretty spectacular too.
Living in Cornwall, we have many beautiful beaches and having visited beaches across the world, Trevone still has my heart.
