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. Holiday cottages in Bowness and Windemere are the ideal base from which to explore the stunning landscape of the Lake District. As well as being popular with hikers, visitors can enjoy bike rides and water sports in the local area. Meanwhile, thespians and budding historians should consider a holiday cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon; the home of William Shakespeare.

Things to do

Watergate Bay Beach: Stretching around two miles, Watergate Bay Beach is a sand lovers paradise. The open bay with cliffs and pools at either side is the perfect base for a host of beach activities, from exercise and walking, to swimming and paddling. The beach has been highly commended by the Water Conservation Society who commented on the ‘excellent water quality’ and welcomes dogs throughout the season. In addition, there is parking and a host of facilities within easy reach of the beach entrance.

Surfing: Cornwall surfing is the envy of the world and many travel especially for the waves. From holiday apartments in Watergate Bay there is easy access to the large open beach and bay where a variety of tides await. Waves are typically found to be between one and ten feet high and there is a peaky beach break, which is particularly popular. The beach and bay were the 2007 hosts of the English National Surfing Championships and a host of smaller competitions take place throughout the main season.

Golf: Within driving distance of holiday apartments in Watergate Bay, there are a number of golf courses which are widely acknowledged to be friendly, welcoming and challenging. The Merlin Golf Club is the closest, at one mile away, but there is also the Magwan Porth Club and the Treloy Club.

Tourist attractions: Away from the beach and the water, Cornwall has a host of attractions which make it a highly desirable tourist location. The Screech Owl Sanctuary, the Blue Reef Aquarium and Newquay Zoo are popular attractions for animal lovers and children whilst the Eden Project is the ideal day out for those interested in science and nature.

Great cottage, great surroundings near the sea !

5 of 5
Overall the cottage was lovely, not big but exactly what we wanted. It is in a well appointed position and it was so quie, everything you needed was available to cook and look after yourself. The caretaker was on site so any questions she was readily accessible. The owner has taken great pride in the furnishings of the property and it was a pleasure to be in lovely surroundings. The cottage is in a great position if you are looking for activities including the beach only 2 miles away in each direction, local pub and eateries. If you want a quick lunch recommendation there is a ‘Malcolm Barnecutts’ bakery on Rock road, great for sandwiches, pastries and cakes.
