Pier / Boardwalk Tourist Spot
Numerous bars, shops, and restaurants attract thousands of visitors to Padstow Harbour, a small fishing port made famous by celebrity chefs Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth. Walk around the area to observe and photograph an idyllic scene of fishing and pleasure craft rocking side by side on their moorings, as local children fish for crabs from the harbor wall. Several popular quayside inns and cafes overlook the calm waters, drawing both residents and tourists to drop by for an evening meal and a few drinks with friends, just as the sun sets over the harbor. Located just north of this area, a convenient visitor center offers various tourist services, information, and maps of the harbor and the surrounding region.

  • Lovely place nice shops, alot of food places and great views.
  • I love to visit here even though the weather was pants today it's still beautiful and exciting. "Oss Oss, Wee Oss"
  • A nice little harbour. A few local shops in the area and boat trips. In season there is occasionally something going on by the harbour, singers, band etc. Nice and tranquil. Dog friendly area with a few walks leading away from the harbour and along the coast. Car parking is tight, but a larger car park further along the sea wall. Gets busy in season.
