About Polzeath

Westerly winds drift through the deep curve that is Hayle Bay to create ideal conditions for surfers. There is fine surfing from all along this stretch of coastal waters and excellent sun bathing on the warm, softly golden, sandy beach. The beach at Polzeath has a lifeguard on duty, and it remains one of the safest beaches for swimming in the region.

A receeding tide reveals an expanse of rocky pools on what is known as the Greenway which is but a short walk from Polzeath. There are commanding views from here across the Camel estuary to Stepper Point which has a tower built as a landmark for seafarers.

This is an area of pleasant coves, delightful bays and quaint villages. There are fine walks on the headland between Polzeath and New Polzeath where to the north are the banks and ditches of an Iron-Age fort.

Polzeath, is a surfers paradise and an beautiful area that can be enjoyed by everyone.
