This is where some of Cornwall's most eye-catching coastline meshes with its recent reinvention as the home of adrenalin sports and fantastic food.
The Extreme Academy offers tuition and equipment hire to help you get the most from the sea. The amazing Beach Hut is right on the beach, the Jamie Oliver inspired Fifteen Cornwall restaurant overlooks it. All year round, it hosts events, from surfing, kitesurfing, beach polo or family fun days.
It's a pretty big beach, by the way; if you want a lovely long walk and a quiet ice cream, that's fine too!
For accommodation, there is a great choice from Waves apartments, located just 2 mins walk from the sand, Sea Lodge with it's fantastic sun deck and sea views and Camellia Cottage with two enclosed courtyard gardens -ideal for families. New at Watergate Bay is Whitehouse with its garden setting and lovely sea views and The Village where you have a choice of eight beautiful apartments with views over the bay.
