Daymer Bay

Daymer Bay - Cornwall
© Tony Atkin and licensed for reuse under this Licence

This wide sandy beach sits near the mouth of the Camel estuary opposite Padstow. It is backed by sand dunes and a golf course.

Daymer Bay sits in the shelter of Braey Hill, a large grassy hump that sits between here and Rock. Tucked away in the dunes at the foot of Braey Hill is St Enodoc Church. As well as being a particularly charming little church it is probably best known as the resting place of Sir John Betjeman, the former poet laureate.

At high tide the beach is particularly sheltered. The water is shallow and ideal for bathing.
