Watergate Beach/Tregurrian Beach, Cornwall


  • Located in Watergate, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • At low tide, a vast strip of sand arcs north east from Newquay Harbour to Trevelgue Head and then up to Stem Point and Griffin's Point. The upper section of this strip of sand is Watergate Beach or Tregurrian Beach. The beach looks out at Watergate Bay. It backs onto high, vertical cliffs. Towards the middle of the beach is Watergate Bay Hotel and a large public car park that's clearly visible on Google's satellite imagery. There are public toilets and places to eat and drink
  • The beach is popular with surfers and kitesurfers. We'd also recommend watching Polo on the Beach, Watergate Bay
  • The South West Coast Path runs along the cliffs above the sand. The views, as one might expect, are spectacular. Browse our 'Photo Gallery' to see more
  • Note that you cannot walk along the sand direct to Newquay as Trevelgue Head and its Iron Age cliff castle are in the way
  • Watergate Beach is the biggest of a number of top beaches in the area. To the north, try Mawgan Porth Beach and Bedruthan Steps. To the south, visit Newquay Lusty Glaze Beach, Newquay Tolcarne Beach and Newquay Great Western Beach
