On the doorstep of your St Minver holiday cottage, you will discover one of the most beautiful sections of the Southwest Coast Path. Walking a few miles of this renowned route is highly recommended, with towering cliffs, sandy beaches, rocky coves and the chance to spot passing dolphins, seals and basking sharking. The area’s beaches are also among the region’s best. A short drive north from St Minver, Polzeath is a sandy beach which is a popular spot for learning to surf. There are several surf schools at the beach, as well as shops where you can hire equipment, and a scattering of places to eat and drink overlooking the waves. 

A few miles east along the coast, Lundy Bay is a secluded cove where low tide reveals an expanse of sand. Daymer Bay is a vast, sandy shore where windsurfing is popular. It faces south and east, across the River Camel.

During the summer months, a ferry runs between the bay and the fishing port of Padstow.
