However, there is also plenty to explore just beyond Padstow. Half a mile from the harbour, you'll find a number of delightful sandy coves, St. George's Cove being the closest, which broaden and connect at low tide.

And then there's the Camel Trail, a gloriously flat trail designed for walkers and cyclists which follows the River Camel. It's a joyous way to arrive in Padstow, just in time for lunch.
