Each week we bring you one of the best beaches in the world as our Beach of the Week and this week’s best beach is one of Britain’s most beautiful beaches, Watergate Bay Cornwall Newquay
BEACH: Watergate Bay, Cornwall, England
WHERE: On the North Coast of Cornwall and a mere three miles from Newquay, this two mile beach is unspoiled in its perfection. Set at the bottom of steep cliffs, the Atlantic serves up a generous helping of bodacious waves on a regular basis.
WHY: Not just an easily accessible (yet secluded) paradise for surfers and water sport enthusiasts, this beach also has front row seats to some of the best summer events. Forget the Olympics and sweaty tube rides in London, party with hip hop legends De La Soul under the open sky at the Electric Beach Festival and rub shoulders with the elite at Veuve Cliquot’s Polo on the Beach.
HOW: Just minutes away from Cornwall’s party hub Newquay, you can reach the blissful bay via a picturesque coastal road. Prepare to be amongst retro cars and campervans with surfboards flung on the roof and shaggy dogs hanging out the windows.
H2O TONE: Deep British blue
SAND TONE: Cornish ice-cream
STAY: At the stylish but barefoot bohemian Watergate Bay Hotel. It has an English beach feel, all wooden huts and ice-cream pastels. The pool and deck area overlook the bay and are perfect for relaxing whatever the weather (we all know how unpredictable it can be).
