Constantine Bay is a village and beach on the Atlantic coast of north Cornwall. It is situated approximately three miles west of Padstow and is in the parish of St Merryn. The beach is sandy and is popular with surfers and has lifeguard patrols in the summer.


Historically the sand was removed by local farmers by horse and cart to spread on the land to lighten and fertilise the heavy soil. Constantine Bay is named after Saint Constantine, a 6th-century Cornish saint possibly identified with a minor British king Constantine. St Constantine's Well, an historic site, is accessible by public right of way on Trevose Golf Club's golf course.


Trevose Head and Constantine Bay SSSI is designated for both its biological and geological interests. The dune system at Constantine Bay is in an unfavourable declining condition because of the invasion by species such as bramble, ivy and sea buckthorn; and by visitor pressure causing erosion.

Constantine Bay lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
