Harbour Holidays

Take a while to stroll on the beach and admire the view; take a swim or learn to surf; or simply enjoy a picnic with friends.

Harylyn Holiday Area Guide

Stretch out on the sand, take a stroll, swim in the sea or learn to surf. Harlyn Bay on the Cornish coast is an idyllic location for holiday.

Heavenly Harlyn is a fantastic place to visit whether for a day or a week or two. This small beachside village is located on the North Cornwall coast, just a few miles outside Padstow. The main draw is the beautiful beach with its golden sand, blue sea and rugged shoreline. As a north facing beach, Harlyn is relatively protected from the big south westerly swells and winds making it an idyllic haven on a warm summer’s day and a fantastic base for a holiday.

Harlyn is a quiet holiday destination between Trevone and Constantine. There’s little to distract from the beauty of the scenery. However there is the Harlyn Inn pub, restaurant and shop close to the beach. There is also an excellent sandwich and fast food fan, which operates from the beach car park during the spring and summer months.
