Tregirls Beach is one of my favourites for plenty of space, safe swimming/paddling, spectacular scenery, peaceful. The only problem has always been no facilities. Parking is just about OK but access is only for fit people. If you can manage without ice creams and toilets its fantastic. I first came here over thirty five years ago and it hasn't changed...

This is one of the local beaches in Padstow, accessible by foot. It does not have a cafe, toilets or an ice-cream van and for that we loved it! It is a big wide, sandy beach that stays virtually empty because others just don't want to walk that far and yet it is on your doorstep. I rolled my trousers... More

Sometimes I am lost for words, here it was because it windy so couldn't be heard. But, seriously this and the beaches that form together when the tide is low are just heavenly. Walking along and enjoying the view over the estuary, looking across at the houses and planning in you mind that you will live there some day. Some... More

Tregirls is a beautiful beach with stunning views of the Camel estuary. At low tide it is possible to walk across the sand for ages (beware of the incoming tide). Tregirls is not easily accessible and parking is restricted although in the busy season there is a car park. If peace and solitude is what you are looking for Tregirls... More

This beach is like a desert island. White sands and shallow beach stretches for miles when the tide goes out. Hard to get to but well worth it. No shop. No toilets. Just heaven.

So pleased we found this beach, we had it all to ourselves and our dog loved running along it. It was clean, quiet and offered stunning views we would definitely come back!

This is a lovely unspoilt beach with golden sand and warm shallow waters to paddle. Can bring the dog and sunbathe taking in the gorgeous views across the bay. No toilets or facilities but makes up for it in beauty and tranquillity. A real gem.

This is a lovely beach, lots of sand for making castles and if you walk along a ways, it's dog-friendly all year round. We brought out dog here for many walks from Padstow, along the coastal path. Very relaxing, lovely cooling sea-breeze and plenty of sea to paddle in when the tides in.

This is the place to go if you wish to escape the bustle of Padstow's narrow streets. The beach can be accessed at low tide by walking across the sand from Padstow, or via the coast path or from the car park just before you get to Lellizzick B&B. There are no facilities here, just sand, turquoise sea and beautiful... More

......and totally unspoilt. However there are no facilities whatsoever for eating, drinking or and toilets, but that doesn't detract from it's beauty. The beach / area is also referred to by some other names; e.g. Harbour Cove, Hawkers Cove & Gunpoint. This beach, as well as the area along the top of the Coast leading to the beach, was used...
