Bedruthan Steps beach is part of a stretch of north Cornwall coastline owned by the National Trust. The cliff-top scenery provides dramatic views of the North Cornwall coast.
The rocky beaches at Bedruthan are accessed via steep steps from the cliffs. Swimming is not permitted due to the dangerous tides and hidden rocks. The beach is accessible only at low tide and visitors to the beach should beware of being cut off by the fast incoming tides.
Bedruthan Steps is located between Padstow and Newquay on the North cornwall coast. There is an excellent choice of holiday cottages in Padstow and holiday cottages in Newquay from where to base a holiday in the area.
Thanks to the impressive geology, Bedruthan is one of the most popular stretches of the National Trust’s coastal path with holiday makers and locals alike. A car park is provided by the National Trust, which may be used by visitors to the beach.
