Top 10 ten places to visit in South West England – Cornwall


Polzeath has one of the best all round beaches in the whole of Cornwall. It’s a fantastic area to stay winter or summer and an excellent location for surfing. Tucked just inside the Camel Estuary, the combination of Atlantic swells and the gradually shelving sandy beach produces long slow breaking waves that are ideal for improving your skills at every level from novice to advanced. With dolphins and seals as regular companions, Polzeath is a place you’ll want to visit time and again.
New Polzeath and Pentire Glaze Haven are located to the right of the main beach in the direction of Pentire Head, which has stunning views over the bay and the camel estuary to Padstow and beyond to Trevose head Lighthouse. Whether you want to walk the coastline, relax on the beach or explore the local area, Polzeath is one of those special Cornish locations that is simply unforgettable.
