Cornish Sports

Cornwall is a great place to get busy and get fit!

There’s walking, cycling, water sports, surf schools, sailing centres, golf courses, riding and multi-activity centres.


Harlyn Bay

Harlyn Bay, three miles west of Padstow, is a lovely curving beach with plenty of sand at low tide. More sheltered than the neighbouring Constantine, Harlyn comes into its own when stormy conditions make surfing difficult elsewhere.

Constantine Bay

A popular surf spot that connects with Booby’s Bay at low tide. Not a good choice for beginners, but fantastic for experienced surfers.


Polzeath is a free-for-all. The waves are consistent if generally very mellow and the beach shelves gently making it perfect for beginners.

Widemouth Bay

Another beach that can get very busy at times, but is fortunately long enough to absorb a large number of surfers without feeling crowed.
