stuck for transport we can arrange taxi pick ups from Newquay.
Accommodation and Places to Eat
Adjacent to the surf school are car parks, cafe, surf shop, newsagents, pub, fish & chip shop and restaurant. All you need for a day at the beach! Watergate bay is our nearest neighbouring beach where you can dine in style at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant.
Mawgan Porth beach faces the same direction as it's better known big brother Fistral beach which enables it to attract some of the best waves Cornwall has to produce (but without the crowds!). Mawgan Porth is an RNLI patrolled beach and with its natural ampitheatre-like cliffs it can be a great place to sunbathe and surf.

Don't miss the spectacular walk from Mawgan Porth to Bedruthan Steps Beach through National Trust wild land, along the cliffs.
