Polzeath’s beautiful sandy beach is a lure for many including the royal family and celebrities. There is a local surf school with great conditions for taking a few lessons.
The large bay is serviced by a relaxed village right by the beach (complete with car park actually on the sand!). An all-round great family beach – it isn’t hard to understand its popularity.
