Surf holidays in Cornwall

Cornwall is home to an array of surf beaches, including the popular Fistral beach in Newquay, Porthmeor beach in St Ives, and many lesser known surfing beaches. Newquay is regarded as the surf capital of the UK, but stay in Gwithian, St Ives, or Porthtowan and you'll still be able to find some great waves.

For some inside knowledge on the best places to surf, we've detailed ten of the best surf spots in Cornwall. Find out more on our blog: Ten of the best surf spots in Cornwall.

Surf schools

For those of you who haven't tried your hand at surfing, or are looking to improve your skills during your stay in Cornwall, there's an excellent selection of surf schools operating around Cornwall. You can also hire wetsuits and surfboards, so if you don't need a lesson, you can still get out and enjoy the waves if you haven't got your own kit. Check out in St Ives or in Watergate Bay. 


The thriving surf culture in Cornwall means there's plenty of places to grab a bite to eat in between surf sessions or watch the sun go down after a day at the beach. Check out our blog on The best beach cafes in West Cornwall, featuring some great places to re-fuel after a surf.
