Harlyn Bay

Considered one of the best family beaches in Cornwall, Harlyn Bay is a wide, sheltered, and spacious beach of golden sand and pebbles, a small stream and plenty of fascinating rock pools to explore. Backed by dunes and situated on the eastern side of Trevose Head, just west of Padstow, its crescent shaped bay is popular with families, kayakers, and novice surfers, often seen mastering the waves with local surf schools.
