SELF-CATERING HOLIDAY COTTAGES IN WATERGATE BAY

World-class watersports and top restaurants, all with an incredible sunset backdrop.

With its west facing, long sandy beach, sunsets at Watergate Bay really are spectacular. But even before that, the two miles of golden sand make it popular with families, couples, dogs and of course surfers.

The stretch of cliff path here offers long rambles or short jaunts, where you can watch the waves roll in and out with the tide and find a new perspective to watch the sun go down. Whether your view is from the South West Coast Path on the cliffs above, or on the sand itself, it’s inspiring, relaxing and invigorating.

The beach is exposed to incoming swell from the Atlantic making it an excellent place for watersports. You nearly always find surfers, bodyboarders, stand-up paddle boarders and kite surfers at Watergate Bay, and if you fancy giving one of these sports a go you can, with lessons and equipment hire available from the Extreme Academy.

Watergate Bay also hosts a year-round events calendar, from music festivals and surf competitions to Thundercat racing and; there is always something going on.
