Probably most famous for its celebrity fan base, Rock offers numerous water sports activities that include sailing, water skiing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Gorgeous beaches surround this part of Cornwall and the expansive sandy beach at Rock runs along the Camel all the way round to the beautiful beach of Daymer Bay, whilst the famous surf spot of Polzeath is just a short drive away.
Rock and Padstow sit on either side of the Camel Estuary and a foot ferry runs throughout the year between the two, this part of Cornwall is as well known for its amazing gastronomic delights as it is for its beaches; with Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth’s restaurants in Padstow and Nathan Outlaw in Rock to name just a few. If golf is your thing, then there are fabulous courses nearby including the world-renowned St Enodoc and The Point at Polzeath, which also offers excellent fitness facilities, swimming pool, spa and restaurant.
