Rock beach is a vast stretch of golden sands and turquoise sea on the shore of the Camel Estuary, opposite the popular town of Padstow on Cornwall’s north coast.
A breath-taking shoreline, the long sandy beach that fronts the village of Rock is a favourite spot for swimmers and sun-seekers, whilst offshore the Camel Estuary lures sailors, wind surfers and kite surfers to enjoy the strong sea breeze. From Rock beach there are far-reaching along the wide estuary; within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Rock and the surrounding coast is a wildlife-watchers haven, whilst walkers delight in the coastal routes across the sand to Daymer Bay and Polzeath. A small ferry from Rock makes the short trip over to Padstow, for those looking to wander around one of Cornwall’s most iconic finishing harbours.
