Watergate Bay is perfect for sandcastle fun, beachside picnics and is famed as one of the finest surfing beaches in the county. Enjoy an exhilarating ramble along the cliff tops with stunning countryside vista and waterscape beyond. Close by is Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen' restaurant, a great dining venue aside the beach with its incredible view across the bay.

Towan Beach at Newquay is popular, safe and sheltered for swimming with gentle surf for novice boarders. The Blue Reef Aquarium and Newquay Zoo are great attractions for all the family. Water enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with Fistral Beach, a surfers' paradise. Hire bikes at Padstow and cycle along the scenic, level Camel Trail through the spectacular countryside or walk 10 minutes from Padstow to St George's Cove with lush estuary views. Hop aboard the ferry to Rock, which sails every 20 minutes.
