Charity officials warned of a “colossal boom” and “extremely dangerous conditions”.
People walking near the water on Treyarnon Bay in Padstow were pulled back by the force of the wave as they tried to run away.

And a family of nine screamed in fear when they were washed up at sea 40 miles from Padstow Beach yesterday.
The family was hit by a wave of freaks in Gwithian.
They had been sitting on rocks above the swell when they were knocked off their feet and dragged into the water.
Terrified bystanders called emergency services and RNLI volunteers, Coast Guard officers and the Cornwall Air Ambulance were called to the beach.
RNLI helmsman Rob Cocking said: “Luckily everyone made it and was immediately met by the waiting ambulance.”
Two family members had to be treated in the hospital.
A picture of giant waves was posted on Twitter by the witness Lincoln Green, who said, “These waves wiped out almost an entire family on the beach.
“They were about 10 feet from the water, but a freak wave came and pulled them out.”
Steve Instance, RNLI head of water safety in the Southwest, said the waves would be particularly violent today.
“Sea conditions will be extremely dangerous and it is likely that most of the beaches will be marked in red with huge waves, strong currents and increased tidal fluctuations,” he said.
