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.
Harlyn Bay Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
- Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
- Good: generally good water quality
- Sufficient: meets minimum standards
- Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
