Death BayEdit Spot
When summer waves start to get you down, this is the place to be. It's normally a once surf a year sort of place, cos your wetty and board gets trashed by the stones, and everyone normally gets injured.
This is only a summer wave as it turns any swell into a death wave. The wave breaks right on the shore onto a pebble beach. Some good barrels if you're brave and desperate.
Only for body boarders. Slide down the cliff and you're there.
Another low-tide spot between Polzeath and Daymer, again only surfable on the lowest of tides, otherwise the beach is quickly replaced by a sheer cliff face.Walk around the corner from Polzeath or get fit and paddle around from Polzeath. It will take you about 20 minutes but its worth it.
