Surfing holiday in Cornwall

Beachside has everything you need for your perfect surfing holiday in Cornwall. Cornwall is the surfing capital of the UK and there aren’t many places you can stay that are closer to the waves than Beachside. Our range of self catering accommodation and camping and touring pitches overlooks the well-known surfer’s playground that is St Ives Bay, home to the beaches of Gwithian and Godrevy.

The north coast of Cornwall enjoys good surf conditions most of the year, giving both learners and those with more experience a great time in the water. Beachside’s chalets come with plenty of room for surf gear in the covered patio area, and our on-site shop offers hire of equipment.

If you want to take a break from the swell, we’re surrounded by a wealth of other outdoor activities including horse riding, sea fishing and cycling, and there’s always our outdoor heated pool, games room and bar for post-surf recuperation.
