Watergate Bay beach is easy to access and has two car parks which are close to the beach. This rugged part of the north coast has consistently good surfing conditions all year round, with full lifeguard cover from May to September and a watersports school by the beach. Although Fistral is considered the best surfing spot in Newquay, Watergate Bay has similar waves with more space to enjoy them!
With two miles of golden sand to explore, there’s plenty of room for families to enjoy beach games, rockpooling and sandcastle building. It’s a great location for enjoying a beach BBQ or a tasty picnic with spectacular sea views.
Watergate Bay is also well-loved by dog owners, as four-legged friends are welcome on the beach all year round! There’s plenty of space for tail chasing, wave jumping and playing in the sand, plus there’s easy access to the south west coast path for some wonderful coastal walks.
