Overview

Polkerris Beach combines an idyllic sandy Cornish cove with first class watersports facilities. It's as good for a day trip as it is for a two-week holiday or intensive watersports course. From the smallest sandcastle-building toddler to the seasoned watersport enthusiast, there is something for everyone here. Picture this - a sheltered, sandy beach in a small village, self-catering accommodation just up the lane, no through traffic, a beach shop and café, equipment rental so you don't have to lug everything with you and personalised windsurfing and sailing courses at our award-winning, RYA Recognised Training Centre. Round that off with a beer in the Rashleigh Inn as the sun sets and you have the makings of the perfect Cornish beach scene - or dine in style at 'Sam's on the Beach' which has proved extremely popular since it opened in 2009.

Great beach with facilities and restaurants and pub. Brilliant destination for a day trip or just a walk from Par. Can recommend the Rashleigh Pub and Sam's on the Beach for superb food and drinks. Great for watching the sunset.

Had a few days there this weekend and it was lovely. You need to be comfortable with driving in tight turns getting to and from the car park, and it’s not for anyone who struggles with steep hills, but once there it’s lovely, clean, and...More
