Galena Rock is the perfect base for coastal exploration. With the South West Coast Path on your doorstep, you will be spoilt for choice for scenic coastal rambles. In one direction you can walk up to the dizzying heights of Pentire Headland and be rewarded with breathtaking views and if you are lucky, spot seals and dolphins along the way. Stroll onto The Rumps, an impressive rock formation and along to the hidden beach of Lundy Bay.
In the other direction you can discover the lesser-known beach of Greenaway, the golden sands of Daymer Bay and the popular estuary village of Rock. Here you can hop on the ferry which will take you across the Camel Estuary to the harbour town of Padstow.
If you take a right out of Galena Rock, you can also enjoy a fantastic walk through the valley and along the public footpath that comes out on the beautiful fairways of The Point's golf course. Here you can also enjoy a relaxing swim, gym session or lunch with a view in the restaurant.
