Local Beach Guide
With two miles of sheltered soft sands, great waves, fascinating caves, sand dunes and a slow-flowing stream to paddle in, Holywell Bay has it all. But don’t just take our word for it, in 2013 the Daily Telegraph voted Holywell Bay second in its Top Five Holiday Beaches in Cornwall, stating: “The soft sand and rolling dunes at Holywell Bay are perfect for exploring or playing hide and seek with the children.”
Since then it has been used as one of the iconic filming locations for BBC’s hit series, Poldark. You may recognise Holywell Bay beach as the backdrop to the scenes where Ross Poldark emerges from the water. Why not have a go at recreating this moment for yourself?
The National Trust car park costs around £5 for the whole day, alternatively a scenic walk across the dunes takes about 10 minutes from Holywell Bay Golf. On the beach, there’s an ice-cream van during the summer, and just off the beach, there are a couple of pubs, a shop and toilet facilities.
Try a new skill and book yourself a surf lesson with Newquay Surf School, or be daring and try your hand at coasteering. If you’d prefer something more relaxing, then enjoy miles and miles of Cornish coast path taking you along the North Cornwall landscapes.
You don’t need to leave one of the family at home either, as Holywell Bay is proud to be dog-friendly all year round.
We’re fortunate to be located in one of the most idyllic parts of Cornwall (if not the UK) and there’s always lots to see and do in the area.
