Rock enjoys long stretches of fine sandy beaches washed by the tidal waters of the beautiful Camel estuary. Sail, windsurf, water-ski or canoe in this major watersports centre, or take it easy with a spot of fishing or bird watching from the sand dunes.

Said to have got its unusual name from the local quarry that once provided ballast for ships sailing from Padstow harbour on the opposite side of the Camel Estuary, Rock is a great place to find a seat, enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. Rock has a selection of quality bed and breakfast providers with several campsites and caravan parks are nearby.

The Black Tor ferry runs from Rock to nearby Padstow all year round during daylight ours and there is a Water Taxi available.

The village is home to some fairly upmarket eateries, shops and delis providing all the necessary requirements. Nearby is the spectacular St Enodoc Golf Course, said to be the one of the best in the country. Walkers will love the scenic walking country over coastal and inland routes.
