Fun in the sun for everyone

Watergate Bay Beach is just one of many beaches located on the Cornish coast. While surfers love Watergate for the enormous waves, families may prefer to visit Porth Beach, which is calmer for swimming and playing. Whipsiderry Beach is a more secluded beach, there are no lifeguards and it is quieter than the other two. In Newquay, you can also visit the zoo or aquarium if you need to get out of the sun for a day.
