A day at the beach

With so many fantastic beaches to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice here in Cornwall.

Why not try your hand at some rockpooling and see what you can find hiding below the water, create some incredible beach art using the many shells, seaweed and driftwood you’re sure to find across the sand, build the ultimate sand castle or – for those feeling a little more adventurous – head for the water with your body board or surfboard and enjoy the waves (ensuring you are at a lifeguard patrolled beach and abide by the flag system in place).

Cycle the Camel Trail

Running along a disused railway line and following the course of the Camel Estuary, the Camel Trail offers cyclists the chance to explore some of North Cornwall’s most beautiful scenery and wildlife.

A mainly level trail, our favourite section to tackle is between Wadebridge and Padstow where you’ll enjoy fantastic views over the creeks along the way before reaching the idyllic harbourside town of Padstow where, in addition to the stunning scenery and quaint buildings, you’ll find some fantastic eateries to enjoy before making your way back to Wadebridge.

If you haven’t brought along your own bikes, there are plenty available for hire.
