Summer Surfing in Cornwall (Avis Inspires)

by Bianca, for Avis Inspires

With an array of beaches lining Cornwall’s beautiful northern coast, in the southwest of England, there are plenty of reasons to set off on a surfing road trip. Winding roads lead you through lush, green countryside to a selection of breath-taking sandy beaches framed by dramatic cliffs and rolling waves.

Here’s a quick round-up of some of the best beaches to visit with your surfboard. Or read my full article on the Avis Inspires blog: Cornwall: set off on a surfing road trip


Porthtowan: Waves speed onto this sandy beach which stretches for 1.5 miles and is watched over by the nearby iconic Wheal Coates engine house

Fistral: Newquay’s popular surf beach gets lively during summer when it plays host to the annual Boardmasters surf championship and festival

Polzeath: Deep and sandy, this laid-back beach town is nestled among cliffs and is great for learning to surf. Picturesque Port Isaac is also just a short drive away

Summerleaze: Bude town’s nearest beach boasts lovely scenery and lots of aquatic activities to keep you busy, including a swimming pool carved into the rocks

Widemouth: This long beach has a wild natural beauty to it and is popular with surfers of all levels

Sandymouth: A stunning hidden cove that you can only reach via a footpath that runs through a short ravine, where a waterfall cascades onto the beach
