Daymer bay is one of
the jewels in North Cornwall's Crown. Between Rock and Polzeath
you will find Trebetherick, and it is here that the fabulous expanse of sand
that is Daymer bay, can be found. Daymer bay
and Cassock are in the mouth of the Camel estuary and unlike
Polzeath has very little in the way of surf...but it
is an excellent spot for swimming, windsurfing, boating or canoeing.
This wide sandy beach is very sheltered and at high tide you can walk
out in to the sea for quite a way before it comes up to your waist.
Daymer is an ideal location
for families with youngsters to spend the day. It also offers some
stunning walks for those of you who don't care for the water.
To the right of Daymer Bay you will find an abundance of rock
pools and the small beach known as
Broadagogue Cove renowned for its abundance of Cowrie shells. The headland
walk to Polzeath is called Greenaways,
which is accessible from both Daymer car park and Tristram car park in Polzeath.
Trestram Covelet is a small beach usable only at
lower tides on the Polzeath side of the Greenaway.
To the left of Daymer Bay is Braey Hill,
which is well worth climbing for the superb views that it
affords of Hawkers cove, the Doom Bar and Stepper Point (sleeping Dragon).
At the foot of Braey Hill and behind the dunes of Daymer lies St Enodoc Church
(The last resting place of Sir John Betjemen "poet laureate").
Further to the left, across the St Enodoc
golf course or via the beach, when the tide is low...you will find
