Rock Beach is a long stretch of golden sand following the estuary towards the coast. It is backed by sand dunes and behind these is the prestigious St Enodoc Golf Club. There is plenty of room and you should be able to find a spot even in the height of summer.
The Padstow foot ferry leaves from Rock Beach .In the summer, the estuary waters play host to numerous water sports and sailing regattas so some regard must be paid to the tidal currents and abundance of water craft. Even if getting out on the water isn't your thing, just take in the view. The estuary here is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a haven for wading birds.
