Watergate Bay Beach

Itinerary
Loading...

Watergate Bay in Newquay has a two-mile stretch of sandy beach at low tide. An action-packed beach with excellent facilities and beachside restaurants.

For surfers, Watergate Bay is a good beach for all experience levels including novices with a mid-high tide sandy beach break (left and right). SE wind direction is generally considered the best surf conditions.

Good kitesurfing location due to the large beach and very good kite surfing learning spot due to the shallow large beach. Note that kitesurfing is not allowed between lifeguard flags during the peak season.

The beach has local shops, a car park, cafe, toilets, surf school & hire, toilets and seasonal lifeguard (May – end of September). If you want to head into Newquay this is a good 45 minute to an hour walk.
