Rock car park is actually called Rock Quarry Car Park. Rock was quarried from here to use as ballast in boats and this activity is what gave Rock village it’s name.
Rock car park Location
The car park is situated at the very end of Rock Road, which is a no through road. For sat nav directions use PL27 6FD. The car park is relatively small and busy in summer. If you aren’t in a hurry it’s often worth joining the queue as cars go in and out often when the ferry from Padstow comes in and drops off passengers. There are plans to extend the car park.
Nearby ferry, shops, restaurants and footpaths
Rock car park is just a few hundred yards from the pick up point for the Rock Padstow ferry, the Blue Tomato Café, Rock Inn, Jack Wills, White Stuff, The Beach House and a short walk to the Rock lifeboat station and Camel Ski School. From the car park it’s also possible to walk around the costal path to Daymer Bay, Polzeath and beyond. You can even walk to Daymer Bay along the beach at low tide. If you’re feeling energetic you could climb Brae Hill to take in stunning views of the Camel Estuary.
There is a toilet block in the car park.
Access to Rock dinghy park
Between the car park and the beach is a large dinghy park where sailing dinghies and small inflatable boats can be left whilst you’re on holiday, for a small fee. See the link below for details. You can pay fees at the hut in the dinghy park.
The car park is owned by Padstow Harbour Commissioners and more information can be found on the Port of Padstow website.
