Sunset Surf
Sunset Surf - outside

This is such a West Cornish combo: a beachside cafe and surf school. Tuck into a bacon sandwich breakfast after a morning surf, or simply bypass the aquatic bit and head straight for a cream tea.

The cafe is open ten until four from Wednesday to Sunday. The terrace is the perfect spot for a coffee (or a chilled afternoon cider on a hot day), or if you need to warm up from the water, drink a hot chocolate next to their toasty woodburner.

Renowned surf school Global Boarders runs that side of things, and there's also a surf shop and equipment hire. You'll find this surfers' haven behind the car park at Gwithian beach.
