Constantine Bay lies on the North coast of Cornwall to the west of Padstow. West facing it lies adjacent to Booby's Bay on the western flank of Trevose Head. At low tide Constantine Bay offers a wide crescent of golden sand backed by masses of low dunes. Also at low tide, rock pools are worth exploring by the younger members of the family.
There are a large number of accommodation options in the general Padstow area, depending on your budget, including the Retallack Resort, recently graced with the MasterChef of 2008, James Nathan, serving fine food at his Green Room Restaurant.
Constantine Bay is a dog-friendly beach, with a small public car park and public toilets. There is better parking available at Treyarnon Bay, a 10 minute walk from the Constantine Bay, in high season.
