Constantine Bay - Cornwall

Constantine Bay is a thing of beauty!

This beach has fast become one of my favourites in Cornwall because its so easy to get to, its not that far from Devon so can easily be done on a day trip, its such a big stretch of beach that it never feels too busy, the water is crystal clear and turquoise, the sand is that gorgeous golden sand and the sand dunes really make you feel like you are separated from any kind of civilization so it doesn't feel built up on at all, its just you, the beach and the sea!

Located very close to Padstow, known as one of Northern Cornwall's gems!

Very popular beach for surfers/body boarders. Can be a little dodgy for swimmers as there are some nasty rip tides so take it easy. The bay has some fab rock pools to check out and the beach is backed by a network of sand dunes. Of course this is also part of the South West Coast Path as well!

At low tide is connects with its sister beach Booby's bay. at High tide Booby's Bay is only accessible via a footpath near the golf course.


Parking is very limited at Constantine Bay. There is a very small car park located at the bottom of the hill by the café (only about 12 spaces, will fill up quick, £5 all day) alternatively there is a field that is also £5 a day that you can park in about 2 thirds of the way down the hill (again will fill up so get there with plenty of time) You can always park at Treyarnon Bay and then walk the coast path to Constantine Bay - takes about 10 minutes.

One thing to note is there is absolutely no phone signal at Constantine Bay, so if you fancy a place where you are off the grid for the day then this is the place for you.

Good to be made aware that this is a beach that allows dogs all year round, this is a plus point for some but could be a negative point for others.

There is one small café where you can buy refreshments, lunch, ice cream etc... also toilets are available (small charge for the toilets)
