Words by Visit Cornwall:

Padstow is a charming working fishing port where watching the everyday ebb and flow of harbour life is a perfect way to spend a day.

Surrounded by glorious sandy beaches, no less than 7 bays are within a five minute drive, the town’s gorgeous setting at the head of the Camel River Estuary and the natural beauty of the surrounding area — its rugged coastline, quiet coves and fabulous walks make it a must-visit. For foodies, Padstow is a dream destination as the town majors in fresh, locally produced food and is famous for the restaurants of celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth. Start and end point for the gorgeous Camel Cycle Trail, Padstow also makes a good base for exploring the South West Coastal Footpath, taking a boat trip or trying out various water sports including fishing, surfing and sailing. Nearby there’s also unrivalled golf on the seaside links of St Enodoc and Trevose.
