With a visit to Cornwall comes a release from the hubbub of everyday life. A soothing, medicinal quality that is no better experienced than on one of the many stunning beaches lining the coast. Take Treyarnon Bay.
Found on Cornwall’s north coast, Treyarnon Bay is easily accessible. Constantine beach is just around the corner and the town of Padstow is around five miles away. If you enjoy walking, you can access the beach from the beautiful South West Coast Path. However, driving will be an easier option for most people. There is a car park located close by, meaning you don’t have to waste any time before hitting the beach.
A huge expanse of golden sand stretching out to meet a cobalt blanket, the bay is understandably popular among locals and visitors alike. With a long, gentle incline towards the sea, there is plenty of beach to explore at high and low tide. Rock pools are scattered around the beach, great for wildlife enthusiasts of all ages to gaze into. There is also a large pool that you can bathe in when the tide is out.
Whatever the season, there’s no better way to kick start your holiday than throwing off your shoes and paddling in the cool sea. That said, if you want to go all out Treyarnon Bay is a great swimming beach with lifeguards on duty from May until September. There are also surf schools running throughout the summer suitable for all ages.
With so much beauty all around, all you need is a little time to sit back and take it in. Sometimes there’s no better way to unwind than taking a solo trip, but if all the gang is coming along, Treyarnon Bay offers something for everyone. The beach is also dog-friendly year-round, so your beloved canine companion can join in on the fun too.
North Cornwall’s stunning scenery offers plenty of food for thought and reflection. With that in mind, there is a cafe nearby offering replenishments. Beach life makes for hungry work and a hot drink and food will go down a treat. Kelly’s ice cream, a beach shop and toilets are also available.
