The Details


Where Is It?

3 Waves is set just moments from the shorefront 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 7 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 just returned from an amazing stay at 3 The Waves. The apartment was spotless, modern and very well equipped and exceeded our expectations. Location is fabulous, we walked miles and miles of the coastal path with our dog with incredible coastline as our backdrop. Already planning a return visit!
Very clean and well furnished. Had everything we needed including washer/dryer and a variety of utensils. Great view from balcony, very comfortable bed and great shower. Very dog friendly.
Very clean and well presented. Much appreciated extras on arrival - tea coffee biscuits milk etc - even a nice hand sanitiser. Lovely white cotton bed linen and plenty of towels!
