Padstow is a town and also a fishing port located on the north Cornwall coastline by the western bank of the River Camel’s estuary. Originally a fishing port, some fishing vessels still remain but these days Padstow is a destination for tourists with yachting being the main maritime activity. Padstow is great for hikers as it has access to the South West Coast Path, The Saints’ Way and The Camel Trail. Also, if you like your food, Rick Stein has a restaurant and cafés in the port.
Padstow Harbour & Bay
Padstow started by a River Camel creek. As the port developed the town was constructed. The railway arrived in 1899 bringing extra trade and the current dock was constructed in 1910. The New Pier was built in 1932 to provide protection inside the Inner Basin to fishing boats. However, fishing has been in decline in recent decades, as is the case with many UK fishing ports.
Padstow Bay is a short distance north of Padstow with the River Camel flowing into it. To the west is the headland of Stepper Point and to the east is the headland of Pentire Point. Just south of Pentire Point within the bay on the eastern side are the settlements of New Polzeath, Polzeath around Hayle Bay. Just north of the mouth of the Padstow Bay is Newland Island.
