In this 'you may also like' section we attempt to answer what else can I do? Here you have a list by order of being the closest some more beaches, things to see and do, places to eat and upcoming events.
- The Trevone Bay Cafe and Shop sits behind the beach by the car park. You will find a cafe, shop and can hire to you wet suits, surf boards, kayaks and bodyboards. The bay can be a little rough and the shop is always on hand to offer advice on the conditions.
- You don’t get a prize for guessing why Newtrain Bay is also known locally as Rocky Beach. The beach located to the west of Trevone Bay is the perfect beach for shell collecting and rock pooling which should not be a surprise based on the local name. When the tide is high you have no beach but as the tide goes out you get large rock slabs interspersed with rock pools. Newtrain Bay is such a contrast to Trevone Bay and has some very interesting rock formations and well worth the short stroll from the sand of Trevone. If you walk a little further you will find a natural sea-water swimming pool hidden amongst the rock slabs. Facilities are shared with Trevone Bay: car park, toilets, beach cafe and shop.
- Trevone Bay is a large gentle shelving sandy beach protected by cliffs on either side, the bay also has a number of alcoves which can provide some natural protection from any wind. You need to be careful of the surf as it can be rough and we would suggest only entering into the water whilst the lifeguards are present or go and ask for advice from the beach surf shop as they understand this bay and always seem willing to help. To one side in front of the houses you have a grass area and on the other, the coast path takes you to the cliffs above the beach where you have an interesting blowhole eighty feet deep formed by a collapsed sea cave known locally as ‘Round Hole‘. When visiting Trevone Bay we would also strongly suggest popping by to Rocky beach next door as it is such a contrast to the sand of Trevone, with large rock slabs, rockpools and even a sea-water swimming pool. Facilities at the beach include plenty of car parking spaces, toilets, beach cafe and shop and lifeguards in the summer. You also have a small farm shop and pub about half way down the steep road to the beach.
- Padstow Cycle Hire is ideally located at the start of the Camel Trail, a 17.5mile trail running along a disused railway line by the side of the Camel river. Offers full day or part day Cycle Hire with kit for all ages and includes children and dog trailers. You are advised to pre-book at the height of the summer season.
- Harlyn Bay beach is a good all-round family beach, great sand, safe paddling beach, surfing, rock pools to explore and coastal walks. Harlyn is near Padstow, to the east of Trevose Head which means it is more protected than those exposed directly to the Atlantic rollers, with another good beach option with a similar aspect being its neighbour Trevone Bay. The beach ar Harlyn can get busy in part due to it being what you expect from a Cornish beach. Facilities at the beach include parking, shop, toilets, lifeguards in summer and a pub nearby.
- St Georges Cove Beach is the closest beach to Padstow and accessible by traveling north along the coast path. This is a sandy cove facing out into the Camel Estuary and at low tide it is possible to walk along a single stretch of sand from St George’s Cove through Harbour Cove and on to Hawkers Cove. The beach is sheltered as it facing into the estuary rather than out to the sea but the estuary can have strong currents and so swimming is not advised. The walk from Padstow to St Georges Cove takes about 20 minutes but when you arrive you have no facilities so you will need to take what you need. Excellent beach walk with great views across the Camel Estuary.
