You may not have heard of Daymer Bay, but if you want to experience kitesurfing the Cornish way then you need to include it on your hit list. This is one of the most popular spots with the local kitesurfing community, so if you want to kite surf like the Cornish then this is the bay to head for. Close to Polzeath, this beach connects to the activity hub that’s Rock Beach at low tide and has miles of sand, sand and more sand.
There’s no seasonal dog ban at Daymer, so no matter when you visit you’ll be welcome to bring your pet with you, and it’s also a handy one as parking and the toilets are conveniently close to the beach. Speaking of convenience, you’ll also see a pub overlooking the car park that’s perfect for an after-shred drink and something to eat.
Compared to neighbouring beaches Rock and Polzeath Daymer is slightly off the beaten track, but it has a refreshing secluded feel that adds to the sense of adventure. Kitesurfing Daymer Bay works best on a N – NW as you’ll find the wind blows straight in off the sea, and although this is a safe area watch out for rocks at the northerly end of the beach. You’ll occasionally see boats going back and forth, so make sure you give them plenty of space for your own safety too.
Please note that kitesurfing isn’t allowed between 10am and 60m during July and August, and there’s no lifeguard cover available at Daymer Bay.
