Webcams – southwest surf, sea and scenery

by Jon

If you going to explore the southwest then webcams can help you check out the conditions before you travel/ set sail/ get onboard!

Find some links below to a range of great webcams in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset. They cover off popular surf beaches and holiday hot sports including Newquay, St Ives, North Devon and the Jurassic Coast.

Webcams are great for checking out where you’re going or have been on holiday – or just to enjoy some great seascapes wherever you are.

Do let us know if you know of any other great web-cams that we can stick on the list.

These links all go to external sites so OCEANROCKS can’t be responsible for the content, so please use all your normal online commonsense whilst browsing.  We’ve checked all the links, and they all work. But webcams are notorious for going wonky, packing-up or getting turned-off, so apologies if that’s happened.

Live Traffic Updates & Webcams

Before you get to the sea, surf and scenery stuff you might want to check out the info. below on Traffic webcams first.

OK, so watching traffic is pretty boring. But a quick check on your phone could make the difference between sitting on a beach all day and sitting in your car all day. Your call!

You can access webcam latest images from Traffic England from the network on main highways across the whole of the country. Useful.

First, you have to register on their website  And it’s actually a pretty quick and painless exercise. After confirming a verification email you can start to checkout the webcams.

On the home page go to the ‘Map Layers’ button and select cameras from the menu. And all the camera locations pop up on the map!  Just click on the one you want to look at.
