    Freshwater West is a popular surfing beach due to its consistent Atlantic swells and strong waves and regularly hosts surfing tournaments.

    As this is a remote beach with unspoilt views it is a popular filming location, such as: 2010 Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe, Harry Potter films and BBC’s The Sarah Jane Adventures.
