Coastal Walk; Daymer Bay to Polzeath
The walk from Daymer Bay to Polzeath is one of my favourites and it’s an easy 2.5 mile walk, relatively flat and perfect for an afternoon where you want some sea air. Daymer Bay is on the North Coast, between Polzeath and Rock and across the bay from Padstow. It’s one of my favourite beaches and one I’ve visited so many times throughout my childhood, so it holds a special sentiment to me.
Daymer Bay has a decent sized car park to start your walk. There’s a small shop for refreshments and toilets. The coastal path is picked up right from the car park so you cannot go wrong on this walk.
Following the coastal path, you can take in the view of Padstow and Hawkers Cove before you bend around to see Polzeath and Pentire Point in the distance.
The walk takes around 45 minutes to complete when taking it casually, with numerous benches along the way to take a break. Polzeath is much more hectic than Daymer, which is why I always like to start and end in Daymer and just pop over to Polzeath to grab something to eat.
Polzeath is a beautiful beach and offers great surf, numerous places to eat and drink and bars to spend the evening.
