Harlyn Bay Beach (Cornwall)

  • Information

    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. Harlyn Bay Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.

      A nice big beach although does not have a lot of facilities. We only visited as this is east facing and some of the other beaches were a bit too rough to take out bodyboards. You do need to put up with a few dogs running around.
