Paddle Boarding in Cornwall by Ella Conway
  • Post category:News & Info

Paddle boarding is a well known water sport. Some people call it Stand Up Paddle boarding or SUP. It involves standing on a large board using a paddle to guide your way through the water. Paddle boarding is very popular, 614,000 people tried paddle boarding in England in 2022. It is getting more and more popular.

Hawkers Cove

One of my favourite beaches to paddle board in is Hawkers Cove, an empty beach with a flat blue sea. It is perfect as it has no waves. It has a little walk to get down to the beach from the car park and lovely white sand, but it’s well worth the effort of carrying your paddle board down. It is dog friendly and has a walk to Padstow right next to it.

Daymer Bay

Opposite Hawkers Cove is a beach called Daymer Bay. This beach is so wide that even when there are lots of people there it still feels empty. It has a flat sea and a lovely walk to St Enodoc Church, which was once covered in sand and they had to dig it out. It has golden sand and an ice cream shop, and is dog friendly too all year round.

Both of these beaches are great for paddle boarding as they are quiet which means the sea is not crowded. The sea is flat so only little waves (and no surfers!) which is easier to paddle on like rivers and lakes.

Go on, get out there and give it a go, you won’t regret it. SUPs can be hired locally.
