Polzeath Beach from around the South West Coast Path
Images overlooking Polzeath Beach and Baby Bay/Pentireglaze Haven (the northerly part of the beach), from around the South West Coast Path at Slipper Point (New Polzeath) to where it joins the road.
Baby Bay (Pentireglaze Haven) and nearby coastline on a sunny day in June, taken from the Slipper Point area at New Polzeath. The tide is high and I was mesmerised by the turquoise colour of the calm water. The promontory in the distance is the Pentire headland.
Looking in the opposite direction over the main part of Polzeath Beach on the same day. Seaside daisy (Erigeron glaucus) garden escapes are flowering on the foreground cliff.
More seaside daisies by the edge of the cliff by Baby Bay in June. Light reflects from the foamy waves breaking on the beach below.
A surfer is completely enveloped by a glassy, pale green wave in April.
Sea lavender wildflowers growing on the cliff above Polzeath Beach in July. Despite its name, it is not a true lavender.
Polzeath Beach in mizzle - a mixture of mist and drizzle - in January. The dampness has brought out the purple colour of the Devonian slate rocks.
Polzeath Beach is extremely popular with surfers and body boarders. From the end of July when the main holiday season is underway.
Pale pink blooms of sea thrift/ sea pinks (Armeria maritima) wildflowers growing on a cliff overlooking Polzeath Beach in May.
Baby Bay/Pentireglaze Haven and the Pentire headland in November. The tide is high and the surf pounds the beach.
Seed heads of wild carrot by the cliff in July.
