2. PAD­STOW HAR­BOUR AND COAST PATH

Cornwall Life - - WALK -

Pad­stow’s lively, colour­ful har­bour is packed with fish­ing boats and leisure craft and sur­rounded by a med­ley of his­toric ware­houses, pubs, restau­rants, cafes and shops. The walk can eas­ily be ex­tended along the Coast Path, with lovely views across the Camel es­tu­ary to Rock, Brea

Hill and Doom Bar’s golden sands. Source of an es­ti­mated ten mil­lion tonnes of agri­cul­tural sand, the Bar has well earned its name, be­ing the cause of 600 beach­ings, cap­sizes and ship­wrecks over the past 200 years. Thus, there is am­ple jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for the RNLI’s lifeboat sta­tions at Rock and Trevose Head, which li­aise closely with the Coast­guard sta­tion at Hawker Cove and the Coast­watch sta­tion at Step­per Point.
