Rock Beach, Daymer Bay

Cornwall Life - - THE BIG PICTURE -

Made fa­mous by 1970s clas­sic The Ea­gle has Landed– and the rea­son its star Jenny Agut­ter now calls Corn­wall home – Rock and Daymer Bay is one of Corn­wall’s real gems and per­fect for a beach walk dur­ing Corn­wall’s var­ied win­ter weather.

Rock is eas­ily ac­cessed from the foodie cap­i­tal of Corn­wall that is Pad­stow, via a short ferry ride – or it is worth the sig­nif­i­cantly longer drive around the

Camel Es­tu­ary, this beach is the per­fect spot for walk­ing off all that glo­ri­ous food.

If you couldn’t get a ta­ble at Paul Ainsworth at No. 6 or the queue at Rick Stein was too long, Rock has plenty to sat­isfy the hun­gry with a num­ber of eater­ies of­fer­ing var­ied de­li­cious menus and views to match.

The wa­ter gen­tly laps the golden sand here, en­cour­ag­ing you to slip off your shoes and dip your toes in any weather; the fainter hearted can wade in their wellies. This spot is a favourite with dog walk­ers, and is a great walk­ing beach – keep go­ing and you will find your­self at the ex­quis­ite Daymer Bay, but who can tell when one ends and the other one be­gins. Of­fi­cially part of the Camel Es­tu­ary, at times of the year and ex­treme low tide, it al­most joins Pad­stow.

Rock is also home to an artis­tic com­mu­nity – here you’ll find plenty of gal­leries to pe­ruse, and artists work­ing down lanes en­cour­ag­ing you to see their wares.
