Black Tor Ferry
Leaves from the pier in Padstow or at low tide from Lower Beach; and from the beach at Rock
The easiest and most scenic way to cross the River Camel from Padstow to Rock (otherwise it's a winding 30 minutes by road) is onboard the Black Tor Ferry, which takes just 5–10 minutes. And when Padstow's tangle of cobbled streets are crammed with tourists, it can be a relief to cross the water and land on a wide, sandy stretch of beach. Bikes, buggies and dogs are welcome on the ferry, and once you're Rock-side there are plentiful beach and coast path walks to Daymer Bay, Polzeath and beyond.
