Watergate Bay has some of the best waves in Cornwall and is a mecca for kite surfers all year round. The Bay is sheltered by the high cliffs and often plays host to the annual English National Surfing Championships. Watergate Bay is a surf spot that works on most tides and with two miles of space to play with at low tide, there is plenty of room for everyone.

The Extreme Academy has been awarded recreational English surf school status by Surfing England and is also a British Kitesurfing Association approved school.

Right on the beach within the bay also sits the Watergate Bay hotel and the Beach Hut restaurant where you can walk straight out of your hotel room and onto the beach. When staying at the hotel, you can take advantage of the hotel board storage, outdoor showers and wet suit changing facilities.
