Best thing about

Looking out over Watergate Bay from the third floor balcony with the beach so close.

The Details


Where is it?

17 Waves is situated just moments from the shoreline of Watergate bay.

The beat of your heart in the surf, the taste of fried fish and juicy burgers, the sea salt on your skin, the sight of people dotted about, lively and smiling, in and out of the topaz blue sea. It's all part and parcel of Watergate Bay, the adrenalin junkie's paradise which embodies the spirit of the North Cornwall coast.

Scarlet sunsets set the sky alight as you dine in the swanky beachfront eateries or sip a warming hot chocolate on the sand. Watergate's two miles of sand are popular with families, couples and dogs alongside surfers and thrill seekers. Stride out on a long ramble or short jaunt along the coast path, with nearby walks to Newquay's seven bays or Mawgan Porth.

Plunge into watersports lessons from the Extreme Academy, where you can try your hand at surfing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and kite surfing. The beach is exposed to incoming swell from the Atlantic, making it an excellent place for watersports.

The lively atmosphere at Watergate is as constant as the tides, with vibrant music festivals and surf competitions running throughout the year.

Guest Reviews

We have rented a few places at Watergate and would say this 3rd floor corner sea-view balcony must be the best at Waves. We enjoyed meals at Beach Hut, Zacrys, and Emily Scott's restaurant which was amazing. We love that at Watergate Bay that you don't need to leave for a week, just so chilled and happy children on the beach all day. Spacious, clean apartment, and our 3 children loved the triple bunk bed which was also very big and cosy. Things I didn't know which were better than expected = very large freezer unusual for holiday home. Fab smart TV with netflix, bbc etc. I'm sure we'll be back - thank you.
Very well equipped apartment, perfectly placed for views of the sea and beach. Spotlessly clean.
We stayed at 17 The Waves loved it! Great location with a stunning view of Watergate Bay. The apartment was very spacious and very clean. Great to have a secure parking space, we visited Padstow, Constantine Bay and had delicious meals at The Beach Hut. We will be back!
Perfect for a family getaway. Beautiful location and a very comfortable stay.
