Camel Estuary at Padstow Harbor is perfectly calm, but you don't have to go far to find North Cornwall's famous surfing beaches. At high tide, nearby Trevone Bay, Harlyn Bay, and Treyarnon Bay are brilliant surfing spots for beginners, and Harlyn has a highly rated surf school to get you going. For veteran surfers, Constantine Bay's reef break at the south end is fantastic at low and high tide, while the point at the north end is best at mid tide. North Cornwall, the surfing mecca of the UK awaits your visit!Padstow for walking holidays
Until 1964 Padstow had a direct rail connection to London, and today this disused line has been turned into an 18-mile greenway between Padstow and Wenfordbridge through the Cornish pastoral countryside. The trail is divided into three roughly equal sections so you can decide if you want to go to Wadebridge, Bodmin, or all the way to Wendfordbridge. On the way, there are myriad lovely places to stop, have a picnic and admire the free-flowing Camel River, and you will find many remnants of the old railway, such as platforms and signs.
