Polzeath (pronounced pol'zeth) is a small seaside resort in the parish of St Minver[1] in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is about six miles (10 km) north of Wadebridge on the Atlantic coast.[2]

Polzeath is known for its sandy beach and is popular with holiday-makers and surfers. Polzeath beach is described on the RNLI website as : ... a wide, flat beach with some shelter from winds, it sees good quality surf and is quite often extremely crowded.[3]

The main street through the village runs along the seafront and then rises up steep hills at both ends of the seafront; towards the neighbouring village of Trebetherick to the southwest and towards New Polzeath to the northeast.[2]
