Explore a surfer’s paradise from holiday apartments in Watergate Bay

Watergate Bay lies two miles outside of Newquay on the main road through Cornwall. Facing into the Atlantic Ocean, it is a two mile long sandy expanse which is one of the most popular and well-loved beaches for surfing in the United Kingdom. It has played host to the English Nationals Surfing Championships and is highly sought after, with many travelling extensively for the waves on offer. In addition, the Bay is popular for a variety of water sports, kite flying and sand art.

HomeAway has a number of holiday apartments in Watergate Bay on offer. Families and groups are welcome, as are children, whilst gardens and on-site parking is widely available. Many of the holiday homes are modern in origin and tasteful in design with inviting, calm interiors, which are fully equipped to offer a luxurious and welcoming stay. Modern, fully fitted kitchens with laundry facilities, dishwashers and wi-fi are available whilst many apartments also have entertainment facilities such as DVD players and cable television. Finally, many are within easy reach of the main beach and waterfront of Watergate Bay allowing for easy and quick access.

Whilst beach holidays and surfing appeal to many families and groups, and account for much of the popularity of Watergate Bay apartments, England has a great deal more to offer visitors.

We've been to Cornwall plenty of times but not here. Great real working harbour with plenty of good places to eat and drink. All good !!! whatever you're in the mood for, from a typical Cornish Inn to something a little more modern, it's all here and all within a minute or two of this great apartment. Had a cosy week in November watching the fishermen land their catch. Great views from the apartment over the harbour,to the lighthouse and out to sea. The apartment had everything we needed and was very clean and tidy. We'll book again next time we're in Mevagissey. Thanks very much for a great stay, Jez and jan
