Coastal golf links

Picturesque Polzeath village at Hayle Bay on Cornwall's North Coast is a top surfing and coastal walking destination, home to one of the UK's best beach bays and within walking distance of other beaches including Daymer Bay and Greenaway beach. The coast path around Pentire point, Trebetherick and St Minver offers magnificent views of the rugged Atlantic coast and the occasional dolphin or seal off-shore. It's scenic walking inland too, south to Rock where you can pick up the ferry across to Padstow. This stretch of the North Cornish coast was beloved by the poet John Betjeman who is buried at St Enodoc church to the south of Polzeath.

Cafes and restaurants in Polzeath are beachside with fabulous coastal views. The village has a wide selection of independent shops, and accommodation in this popular beach and surfing area includes holiday parks, campsites, self-catering cottages and apartments, hotels and B&Bs. Other activities in the area include world class golf at St Enodoc Golf Club's two coastal links courses with views towards the sea, estuary and Padstow. Head off along the 17 mile long Camel Trail open to walkers and cyclists. The river Camel inland also offers great fishing territory.

Surfing & Beaches

Polzeath's Surfs Up Surf School right on the beach has built up a reputation as the UK's number one surf school with origins stretching back to 1995. Expect the highest level of surfing instruction here for all abilities and a warm welcome. They offer a variety of courses for beginners, those looking to improve, intermediate levels and taster sessions aimed at kids. Board hire is available on the beach, and lifeguards are here across the summer season. Greenaway beach just west of the main beach, accessible via the coast path, offers great rock pooling for families. Just around the corner sits Daymer Bay which has slightly gentler waves than the main beach and is popular for bathing and windsurfing. Lundy Bay is also a popular swimming beach, easily reached via the coast path from Polzeath.
