The villages along the coastline to Padstow boast some of the most spectacular beaches in North Cornwall. St. Merryns' slogan "7 bays for 7 days" illustrates the multitude of coves available.
Harlyn Bay is a beautiful and spacious beach popular with families and surfers. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year around. There are life guard services in the summer and a large car park and shop.
St Merryn boasts a medieval church, Bronze and Iron Age settlements, holiday complexes, self catering caravan parks and a golf course and country club. St Merryn has a post office, a filling station, several shops and a fish and chip shop with a cafe. There are also several licensed restaurants and two pubs - The Farmers Arms and The Cornish Arms.
Moving south down the coast from Harlyn Bay, is Constantine. Fringed by sand dunes, Constantine Bay provides swimming and year round surfing facilities and has an expansive sandy beach with many rock pools and plenty of sand for the children to play within. There is a sloping path to the beach and parking is limited so it is worth considering parking at Treyarnon Bay and walking the coast path to Constantine Bay which takes approx 10 minutes. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year around.
Treyarnon Bay is a narrow sandy beach with rocks on its northern side providing many rock pools and a large natural swimming pool.
A mile to the south is the seventh and final beach at Porthcothan Bay. Long and narrow, it is bordered by dramatic cliffs on both sides.
Holidays at Harlyn and Constantine Bay Self Catering accommodation offer easy accessibility to probably two of the finest beaches that the North Cornish coast has to offer. These bays are the ideal destination for summer holidays with the family. With Padstow only a few miles away, with a host of restaurants, public houses and retail outlets, Trevose and St Enodoc golf courses only a short drive and sailing at Rock....... what a destination for your holiday!
