Home of Boardmasters Surf & Music Festival, Jamies Olivers fifteen restaurant and an enormous expanse of sand at low tide, Watergate is a firm favourite in the list of Cornwalls best beaches.


Parking is next to the beach, the local facilities are good; cafe/shop, adventure sports, etc and Watergate has lifeguard cover during the summer.


The north Cornwall coastline is simply stunning and good walks can be had in either direction along the South West Coast Path.
