The North coast, beloved of surfers around the country, is only half an hour’s drive away. Try Perranporth, Watergate Bay, Fistral or Polzeath for huge, sweeping sandy beaches and beautiful views.

Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned surfer, there’s a beach to suit you. And there are plenty of places offering surf lessons for children and adults. Try Wavehunters in Polzeath, Harlyn Surf School, Harlyn Bay nr Padstow or Perranporth Surf School.

Several companies offer escorted canoeing or kayaking locally:

Wildlife trips

Based in Falmouth AK Wildlife Cruises offer half or full day trips along the south Cornish coast looking for wonderful wildlife including birds, seals, dolphins and even whales!

Get out on the water

Self drive motor boats or rowing boats are a wonderful way to get our on the water. They can be hired from Mylor Boat Hire, Falmouth Boat Hire, Helford River boats (at Helford Passage) and Fowey Boat Hire.
