About Polzeath Beach

This large beach north of Wadebridge attracts a multitude of surfers due to its easily accessible location and long slow breaking consistent waves. The beach itself is enormous at low tide, extending around half a mile in all directions. At high tide however the beach shrinks to just a small patch of sand in front of the village. This area is rich in both sealife and birdlife with dolphin sightings common along with the odd puffin too.



Attractions near Polzeath Beach

Pentire Point1.55km from Polzeath Beach

Pentire is a stretch of coast in North Cornwall that boasts beautiful headlands jutting out into the Atlantic sea.  If you look to the south and west you'll see the expanse of Padstow Bay, where the mouth of the River Camel and its tributaries were 'drowned' by melting ice after the last glaciation and now form wide creeks. One of the iconic location where you can spend some nice time.

Daymer Bay1.95km from Polzeath Beach

A stunning beach that at low tide forms long stretches of golden sand backed by dunes from Daymer Bay to Rock with superb views across Camel Estuary. At south the end of the beach is the grassy mound of Braey Hill which is worth a climb for excellent views of the area.

Prideaux Place4.16km from Polzeath Beach

Prideaux Place is a stunningly beautiful Elizabethan manor house that overlooks the picturesque fishing harbor of Padstow in North Cornwall. Fourteen generations of Prideaux have lived here and each generation has added its own contribution to the house and its historic garden. This beautiful mansion sits on the hill above the busy harbor of Padstow and the grounds boast some of the finest views over its ancient Deer Park and the Camel Estuary to Rock and Bodmin Moor beyond.

Treyarnon Bay9.26km from Polzeath Beach

Treyarnon Bay is a beautiful, clean, and sandy north-west-facing beach backed by sand dunes and surrounded by low cliffs.  It is one of the most popular beaches in the area, especially with families because of the expanse of soft sands and low waters. It has a partially constructed rockpool that acts as a swimming pool for older children at low tide.

Carnewas has become one of the most popular destinations on the north Cornish coast because of the spectacular cliff-top view of sea stacks stretching across Bedruthan beach. This dramatic clifftop walk continues to the relative shelter of Port Mear cove. Along the way you’ll pass Park Head, the site of several Bronze Age barrows and an Iron Age cliff castle.

Pencarrow House & Garden13.34km from Polzeath Beach

Pencarrow house and gardens has been the friendly family home of the Molesworth-St Aubyns for almost 500 years. Tucked away on the edge of Bodmin Moor, this Cornish Georgian gem offers plenty to do for all, including families, with a Grade 11 listed garden, Iron Age fort, children’s play area, café and gift shop.
