Images overlooking Polzeath Beach from The Greenaway (corresponding to the South West Coast Path), which runs along the cliffs to the south of the beach.
A wide angle view of the The Greenaway coast path and coastline from the south of Polzeath Beach. The promontory on the horizon is the Pentire Headland and the small island is Newland Island. The pink flowers in the foreground are Sea thrift/sea pinks (Armeria maritima) .
A view further along the The Greenway shows the striking purple Devonian slate cliffs and platforms by Polzeath Beach (the Polzeath Slate Formation). Polzeath Beach itself, together with the houses at New Polzeath, are visible in the distance.
Looking out over the waters of Padstow Bay and the sea thrift cliffs. The small island on the horizon is Gulland Rock.
A closer, limited depth of field image of the sea thrift flowers.
The sea is very busy with surfers and body boarders in late July, when the main holiday season is underway.
