The Beach Hut sits overlooking the beach as well as watchful Mary, 2 great bars with lovely food and phenomenal views, check out their websites to see themed evenings and live music. On the beach itself if you want to really enjoy some Cornish sports then this is the place for you. From surfing to windsurfing or kite buggy lessons, this beach has it all. For these activities you will need to book in advance though. Check this out for a great unique activity you can do for a special occasion or just to challenge yourselves and learn something new.
