Harlyn Bay beach
Harlyn Bay near Padstow is a fantastic family beach, with lots of golden sand and rock pools as well as sand dunes and a small stream to explore. Thanks to the bay's sheltered position, the waters here are ideal for novice surfers and swimmers - and there are lifeguards on duty throughout the summer months. There is plenty of parking at Harlyn Bay, as well as toilet facilities and, in the summer, food and drink vans. Dogs are permitted on this beach throughout the year.
