Watergate Bay beach
Watergate Bay is vast stretch of sand, big Atlantic swells, and high sea-beaten cliffs; a dramatic landscape, it’s one of the county’s wildest coastlines and considered by many as one of Cornwall’s best beaches.
Watergate Bay beach is around 3 miles from Newquay on the North Cornwall coast, stretching out for two miles of golden sand, imposing cliffs, and untamed sea. Spectators, surfers, and world-class kite surfers flock here for the enormous waves providing a spectacular sight on any day. Privately owned, the beach is dog-friendly year-round and if the sea-breeze gets too fresh, there are cafes and restaurants close by to shelter and warm up in.
