Watergate Bay is only five minutes in the car from Newquay and it is well worth a visit, a stunning long beach with impressive cliffs to the back and loads of parking. It is easy access to the beach as there is a large concrete walkway, so this on is great for wheelchairs and buggies.
There are places to hire leisure equipment, including surfboards, beach chairs and wet suits. If you are feeling brave, you can enrol in lessons for some of the extreme sports like kite surfing. Although they may seem expensive, they are great value and give you a wonderful insight in the these amazing sports for adrenaline junkies!
Watergate is a beach for everyone and boasts very lovely eateries both on and around the beach such as Jamie Oliver’s famous Fifteen restaurant and a great cafe at the Watergate Bay hotel.
As you round the corner at the top of the hill you can see down to Watergate Bay and appreciate its beauty. Loads of the local surfers frequent Watergate so there is always something interesting to look at in the sea.
There is also a great cliff walk from Porth Beach to Watergate Bay, find it and try it out on a sunny day. Stunning scenery and deadly high cliffs. Don’t worry though, the path is clearly laid out for you.
