Watergate Bay Surf Lessons

Watergate Bay is a picturesque stretch of coastline located three miles north of Newquay and offers fantastic scenery and surfing. 

Visitors are rewarded with 2 miles of clean golden sands backed by cliffs and superb surf conditions for all levels.

"Beachgoers Paradise"

One of our favorite Cornish beaches to teach surf lessons, this surf spot enjoys the same consistent Atlantic swell as Fistral Beach in Newquay.  With a large open expanse of sand at low tide, Watergate bay is a beach goers paradise with great facilities for all the family. Also known as Tregurrian Beach after the nearby village of Tregurrian. Facilities include a beach side cafe, restaurant, toilets and shop, hotels and pub.
