With a reputation as one of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall, Constantine Bay beach offers a sweeping arc of gently shelving soft pale sands.  This west-facing beach also has numerous rock pools to explore and is very popular for swimming and paddling. 

Constantine Bay is separated from its neighbour, Booby's Bay, to the north, by a thin rocky point; bordered by a large rocky reef to the south and backed by a network of sand dunes. 

Surfing Information: Constantine is a very popular surf spot producing top quality waves in the North Cornwall area. It has a reef at the southern end of the bay that works through the tide, depending on swell size, that produces lefts running into the bay however, the wave can be fickle depending on swell direction. In the middle of the bay at high tide is a good peak producing rights and lefts with fast and sucky waves. There is also a point at the north end of the bay that produces good waves from mid to high tide. Suitable for experienced surfers only due to hidden rocks, dangerous rips and the beach shelves quickly at high tide.
