Watergate Bay, Newquay has a two mile stretch of sandy beach at low tide. An action packed beach with excellent facilities and beachside restaurants including Jamie Oliver inspired FIFTEEN Cornwall and The Beach Hut.
For surfers, Watergate Bay is a good beach for all experience levels including novices with a mid-high tide sandy beach break (left and rights). SE wind direction generally considered the best surf conditions.
Good kitesurfing location due to the large beach (not allowed between lifeguard flags during the peak season). Very good kite surfing learning spot due to the shallow large beach.
A good 45 minute walk from Newquay town centre.
Local shops, car park, cafe, toilets, surf school & hire, extreme beach sports, toilets and seasonal lifeguard (May - end of September).
