Daymer Bay

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

Daymer Bay is a beautiful location on the Camel estuary.

The bay is very popular with kitesurfers and is an ideal location for beginners. There is always water in the estuary. The two hours either side of a high tide should be avoided.

The water is generally smooth, sheltered by a natural sand bar. The prevailing wind is from the north or north west. Conditions at Daymer Bay are at their best for kitesurfing with wind from the north west. While out in the river a northerly also provides good conditions. Watch out for river currents and passing boats.

While novice kitesurfers can enjoy the shelter of Daymer bay, the more advanced can kite surf out along the estuary towards Polzeath.

Please note that kitesurfing is not allowed between 10am and 6pm during July and August.

For live wind conditions

Daymer Bay is also popular with windsurfers and kayaking enthusiasts.

There are many excellent walks in the area. Brea Hill provides magnificent views over the Camel estuary and across to Stepper Point and nearby, a short walk across the golf course, is the famous St Enodoc church, burial place of former Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjemen. Jesus Well, is closeby - credited with healing powers, the well is believed to have sprung from the ground when Jesus himself visited. A walk along the coast path will take you past Greenaway Beach and along the estuary towards Polzeath.

Daymer Bay in History

The infamous Doom Bar across the estuary has driven many a ship to ruin. Daymer Bay has seen its fair share of shipwrecks over the centuries.

It was formerly known as Daymark Bay because of the daymark here.
