Nice area to spend time, nice selection of shops, pubs and cafes. Boat trips available in season, speed boats, wildlife and fishing trips and a ferry service across to Rock.

This is an interesting harbour as it has a mixture of vessels moored there, from pleasure crafts to fishing vessels. You can walk around the harbour or cross over it depending on the tides

A charming working harbour, probably a little different to what we expected - no yachts! There is plenty to look at around what is a relatively small town centre harbour and a walk along the harbour front takes you to the lobster hatchery - worth a visit, I hadn't realised the time it takes to grow a lobster!

Lovely place to visit and walk round. Harbour old and traditional with lots of small boats some offering rides. The speedboat rides are fantastic. Round harbour lots of shops, cafes, restaurants and things to see and do.

WE loved Padstow Harbour. It's got such a fantastic, evocative feel to it. Fishing boats, yachts, dredgers, cruise vessels, lifeboats - this is real salty seadog territory. Lined with quaint cafes and restaurants, framed by authentic old pubs and friendly shops, Padstow Harbour's a real treat.

Lots of food choices, great fun for children if they want to go crab fishing. Or sit outside one of the harbour pubs and watch the world go by.

We visited this town and it was a lovely place. There is lots of shops and pubs. It's great for dog walkers and if you like walking along the harbour. There is a ferry service which was also dog friendly but we didn't use it. The parking was really cheap by the old railway station only 50p an hour.
