Rock's well-heeled and exceptionally beautiful. On the north bank of the River Camel and Estuary

Local beaches and water sports
Rock Beach and Dunes
is superb as are the high dunes behind it. The beach is a sweep of golden sand leading north to Daymer Bay
and Hayle Bay (Polzeath and New Polzeath Beach)
. The dunes offer top views of the Camel Estuary
and Padstow Bay guarded by Stepper Point
and Pentire Point
Coastal walking and The Camel Trail
Given the area's natural beauty, we'd recommend walking the South West Coast Path
. North of Rock are Pentire Point
and Rumps Point
, as featured on the BBC's 2010 programme 'Secret Britain'. Across the water, from Padstow, the path heads north past Harbour Cove and Hawker's Cove Beach
to Stepper Point
Padstow is also the start/end of The Camel Trail
. Bring a bike.
St Enodoc Church and Prideaux Place
If history and culture are of interest, walk to St Enodoc's Church where Sir John Betjemen's buried. In Padstow, visit the National Trust's Prideaux Place.
