Wake up beside the beach

Polzeath is a haven for surfers and beach lovers alike with lifeguards on the beach during the summer season. Although generally a safe, sandy beach, there can be large surf with rips, and care should be taken at times.

Just to the north of the main beach, and joined when the tide is out, is the quieter Pentire Haven beach and beyond, the majestic headlands of Pentire Point. For a walk away from the crowds, follow the South West Coast Path out around the headlands.
