The Location

PL27 6TB – From the A39 at Wadebridge take the B3314 and after 7kms at the ‘T’ junction take the road to Polzeath; after 550m turn left at the cross roads and continue for 1km then take the left hand fork and the centre of Polzeath is 2kms. When tides permit there is a car park on the beach (capacity about 150 cars) which is accessible from the main road next to the beach. The main car park (capacity over 900+ cars) is signposted and is from an access road 70m up the hill on the right with commanding views across the Bay. It is a short walk of 250m along and down the cliff to the beach and easily accessible for the less mobile. An alternative is to go to New Polzeath on approaching Polzeath where there is a car park (capacity 130 cars).
