About Rock  |  Weather  |  Tide Times

Rock could hardly be less appropriately named as it's popularity is largely due to the long stretches of find sandy beaches washed by the tidal waters of the Camel estuary.


Rightly acclaimed as one of the major water-sports centres in Cornwall, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, canoeing and rowing are all activities which can be carried on in the relatively calm waters of the estuary.


Rock Sailing & Water Ski Club are situated on the Quay at Rock and there is a thriving sailing school and ski school both operating from further along the beach near the pontoon, boats can be hired for all water sports, as well as for fishing and bird watching. The Black Tor ferry runs from Rock to Padstow all year round during daylight hours and there is a Water Taxi available for late night "revellers". With the increase in water activities, the RNLI have now stationed a "D" Class lifeboat on the Ferry beach, providing cover in case of emergencies.


The renowned St Enodoc Golf Club has two challenging courses to offer and there is scenic walking country over coastal and inland routes.
