A Guide to Cornwall’s Best Surf Spots

Everyone knows that Cornwall is the mecca for surfers in the UK, and with so many fantastic surf spots to choose from, you might not know where to begin! Thankfully, with eight caravan holiday parks in Cornwall, we have the insider knowledge on where to head with your board during your Cornish break.

On the north coast of Cornwall, less experienced surfers should head to the likes of Watergate Bay where the waves are powerful yet manageable, and the occasional barrel ensures that you’ll always have an exciting session.

As you may know the north Cornish coast is also home to Newquay and the famous Fistral Beach, the capital of European surfing and the spot where the Rip Curl Boardmasters competition is held each year. That’s thanks to it being a consistently good place to surf, and you might have to battle for a spot on the waves during the summer, though it will certainly be worth it!

Surf in the South

In South Cornwall, great surf spots are fewer but you can still ride the waves at Whitsand, one of the longest beaches in the region where the forgiving waves are perfect conditions for those wanting to try surfing for the first time while on holiday in Cornwall.

However the southern coast of Cornwall also tempts highly experienced surfers to Porthleven, a notoriously challenging spot that’s an absolute no-go for novices, yet will get the adrenaline pumping among surfers that can handle the huge waves.

To be close to the action in 2013 why not visit one of our Newquay Holiday Parks. We have Crantock Beach, Holywell Bay, White Acres and of course Newquay. Check availability for our fantastic summer holidays today.
