Rock in Cornwall UK

On the bank of River Camel, in north Cornwall, flourishes the popular town of Rock.
Though known for being the holiday getaway for the “rich and famous”, theres more to this charming town than the “exclusive villas” and “yuppie yachts”.

Camel Estuary
The beautiful sandy beach of Rock stretches out for miles, in gentle abandon. The waters take their cue and are unusually calm and clear...unlike the other beaches of north Cornwall. These sheltered and safe waters make Rock a perfect haven for a whole set of water-based leisure activities. You can indulge in angling, windsurfing, canoeing, rowing, water-skiing, and yes, sailing. You can take the help of the friendly people atRock Sailing and Waterski Club to get started. Sitting on the banks of the Camel River, this club is dedicated to promoting water-activities. Theyll be more than willing to help you experience the pleasure of sailing and waterskiing. Sailing in the open with the wild wind and the squalling is an experience you wont forget easily.

Golf on the Greens
TheSt.Endoc Golf Club boasts of “undulating fairways, firm greens, some blind shots and all with the added bonus of some of the greatest sea and estuary views on any course in the world.” It certainly is a treat to watch the fascinating panorama and to play on the courses hilly terrain! And across the course, is the St.Endoc church – a quaint church with a 13th century steeple. A couple of centuries ago this diminutive church had got buried under the sand, and the only way to enter it was through its roof! Do visit it, youll find it fascinating.

Shopping Spree!
A little away from the secluded villas and apartments, are scattered a bouquet of shops selling you “Rock exclusives”. You can pick up pretty souvenirs, professional photographs of the best vistas in Rock, or even some fine wine and cheese. The shops range from little delightful stores to exclusive boutique establishments. Take your pick. Either way, youll be tempted to go on a shopping spree!
