1. Loos and carpark

2. Which path?

There are thousands of paths up and through the sand dunes just pick one that suits you.

St. Enodoc stands, enigmatically, among the sand dunes above Daymer Bay. It is overshadowed by Brea Hill and is nowadays surrounded by the fairways of the St. Enodoc Golf Course. Why this charming chapel is here is a mystery. That it is an ancient place of worship is without doubt, some of the architecture can be traced back to the 12th century.... More

4. Doom Bar

Depending on the state of the tide if you look out to sea you may see a ridge of sand or some waves in the middle of a flat stretch of water. This is the Doom Bar and is a treacherous sand bar that has caused many a shipwreck. At high tide you can't see it at all. Great place for wreck diving.

5. Watch the golf course

Whilst you can walk along side the golf course there is no need to, pick another path closer to the dunes. If you have a dog the tempation to chase the balls may be too much.

Excellent for surfing.

If you thought the property prices across the water in Padstow were eye watering then this lot will make you faint. There probably isn't a house here for under a million. One recently went for £5.5m !
