Leap into the surf at some of Cornwall’s most spectacular beaches

Across Cornwall

Surfing is every bit as much fun as it looks and the true Cornish experience is not complete without riding the waves at one of Cornwall’s golden beaches, with well-trained instructors.

With over 300 beaches to choose from, everyone can reap the benefits of outdoor activities along Cornwall’s rugged coastline, as well as getting up close and personal to nature and away from the crowds.

Whether you’re a complete beginner, experienced or if you are just up for some fun, a surfing lesson is a must for your Cornwall itinerary and will ensure that you make the most of its amazing beaches.

From St Ives to Newquay to Bude, there are some really great surf schools worth checking out which offer lessons for the complete novice but also those looking to brush up their water sports skills.

End the day with some delicious Cornish grub and a nearby stay in one of Cornwall’s beautiful coastal hotels, holiday parks, bed and breakfast or self-catering retreats.
