St George’s Well
In Padstow we are lucky enough to be surrounded by 7 beautiful bays so there are plenty of lovely beach walks to choose from. If you’re looking for one that can be easily accessed on foot, one of our favourites is just around the harbour from our shop.
Simply take the pathway that leads on up the slope by the gallery and follow it all the way along towards the monument on the top of the hill taking in the beautiful views of the estuary and you will come to a little pathway leading down into a dip where you will find a little pathway leading down to the beach. This is known locally as St George’s Well and at low tide there is a massive expanse of sand left behind for you to walk along all the way round to Hawkers Cove where you will see the Old lifeboat station along with the old fisherman’s cottages.
