Pentire Point and the Rumps, Cornwall

Pentire Point and the Rumps
The Rumps is a twin-headland promontory at the north-east corner of
Pentire Head in north Cornwall, United Kingdom. On the same
promontory, is Pentire Point which stands opposite Stepper Point on
either side of the mouth of the River Camel estuary. The small seaside
resort of Polzeath lies to the south of Pentire Point. The peninsula,
which is made from hard basaltic rock, lies along the South West Coast
Path and is under the stewardship of the National Trust. Sightseeing
boats from the nearby port of Padstow sail around The Rumps giving
spectacular views of the area.
