Wake up to the sound of waves at The Beach, a cool and contemporary new collection of apartments overlooking the surf at Porthtowan. Check the surf from your bedroom window before grabbing your board and heading down the private path to the beach (before breakfast if that’s how you roll). Lock up your boards and beach toys in the secure ‘surf’ store and then while away the day on your balcony until your next session.
A short walk from Zinc and you’ll find yourself standing on Fistral Beach, the UK’s surf capital. The world famous beach draws thousands of visitors and surfers each year but come autumn there are plenty of waves to catch. Check the conditions from your private balcony at Fistral Surf or light the barbecue on the terrace at Zinc 14 as you watch the swell roll-in and surfers pass by.
Not only are you 100m away from one of Cornwall’s premier watersport destinations at Waves – a collection of modern one, two and three bed apartments – but one of Cornwall’s favourite foodie destinations too. Waves benefits from surf lockers and a shower area, meaning you can surf your heart out at Watergate Bay and spend the day on the beach before refuelling at The Beach Hut, Zacry’s or Wax restaurants to name a few.
All that separates Coast from the sand at Porth is a lovely private terrace and a stretch of lawn. Bodyboarders, beginner surfers and families can spend hours in Porth’s gentle waves before progressing to the more powerful surf at Watergate Bay or Fistral in either direction up the road. If you like fresh, contemporary interiors with a light and spacious feel, with a private lockable surf store in the car park for surfboards and beach equipment, then Coast is for you.
Head to Fistral’s southern end for a quieter slice of the action. At Oceangate, a contemporary and sleek new development of apartments, you can turn up the volume with great surf out front or take some downtime at the tranquil Gannel Estuary a short walk behind you. Fistral’s hub of shops and restaurants including Rick Stein, The Fish House Fistral and The Stable wait at the other end of the beach, or be lazy and kick back at home in front of the view.
