- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Harbour Cove is a crescent sandy beach that becomes very large at low tide. The beach is a north facing beach within the Camel estuary and a good quieter alternative to the Atlantic facing Padstow beaches. The beach is also known as Tregirls beach. No facilities and parking is in a field down a rough track from the road and then you will need to walk down a sloping path through some trees to get to the beach itself. No facilities other than a tea room at the farm on the road above the beach. You can walk to both St George’s Cove and Hawker’s Cove beaches from Harbour Cove and at low tide you can even walk to Padstow (about 1 mile) with some great views over to Brae Hill and the beaches at Rock.
- Butter Hole beach has yellow sands and some excellent rock pillars with some good climbing routes up the cliffs. The beach is thought to take its name from, butter = yellow sand and hole = look down on it. Butter Hole beach is backed by cliffs with a risky steep path down or you will need to come in from the sea by boat. This area of coastline is great for walking with the South West Coast path running along the top. If you want an easy route down to sea level you will need to go over to the East side of Gunver Head at Hawkers Cove. No facilities by the beach with the closest facilities over at Hawkers Cove.
- Hawkers Cove beach is an unspoilt beach that as the tide goes out becomes a wide sandy beach which at its lowest point extends across the estuary mouth towards Trebetherick Point, but at high tide the beach all but disappears. You can access the beach from the coast path. Best parking option is at Harbour Cove, in a field down a rough track from the road and then you will need to walk down a path through some trees to get to the beach itself. No facilities other than a tea room at the farm on the road above the beach.
