Only a ten-minute walk along a coastal path to Old Polzeath, the beach is well known for its surf, which makes it ideal for Malibu and body surfing.

An exhilarating blustery walk. We were able to walk on the beach! Rocks covered in mussels... Very clean and beautiful. It was a shame it was so misty. Handy cafe selling tea and coffee.

Saw this twice, once on a glorious sunny afternoon and then on a dull, chilly day. The beach is impressive, no matter the weather. Big sweep of sand and breakers rolling in. The beach is surrounded by surfing hire shops, cafes and shops. Must be...More
