Numerous bars, shops, and restaurants attract thousands of visitors to Padstow Harbour, a small fishing port made famous by celebrity chefs Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth. Walk around the area to observe and photograph an idyllic scene of fishing and pleasure craft rocking side by side on their moorings, as local children fish for crabs from the harbor wall. Several popular quayside inns and cafes overlook the calm waters, drawing both residents and tourists to drop by for an evening meal and a few drinks with friends, just as the sun sets over the harbor. Located just north of this area, a convenient visitor center offers various tourist services, information, and maps of the harbor and the surrounding region.
