For a walk finishing at Polzeath, the Polzeath to St Enodoc church walk is ideal. The Pentire Point walk also reaches Polzeath about half a mile from the end, so it's not too long a walk back after some time on the beach. There are also some walks further up the Camel Estuary at Rock and on the other side at Padstow.
