Camel Estuary

About Camel Estuary  |  Weather  |  Tide Times

An outstandingly beautiful estuary with golden sands on either side is crowned on one side by the old and attractive fishing town of Padstow with its little winding street and picturesque harbour, whilst on the other the most popular select village of Rock, with its expensive bungalows and open sandy countryside. As unlike chalk and cheese, but separated only by five minutes on the foot ferry.


Each boasts miles of golden sands and the estuary offers some of the safest waters off Cornwall, whilst further seawards are all the thrills of crashing surf and spray. Both sides of the estuary offer a wide spectrum of activities, sailing, sail-boarding, riding, golf, boat trips and virtually every conceivable seaside activity. The paths on either shore repay the walker with some of the loveliest scenery in the South West. Inns, restaurants and shops abound.
