  • Dogs are permitted on the beach All Year.

Making a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Padstow, Hawkers Cove is best reached on foot from the town along the South West Coast Path, passing Gun Point, where you’ll find abandoned fortifications dating back to the Napoleonic war. Opposite are the golden sands of Daymer Bay while when the tide comes in, part of the beach is submerged to form the infamous Doom Bar sand bank that has been a perilous hazard to shipping for centuries. The beach is also known locally as Tregirls.

Just up from the beach there is a very pleasant tea garden located at the back of the two hundred year old Coastguard Houses.

Parking is available at nearby Lellizzick Farm

No lifeguard cover
