Activity Weekend Centre

Our HQ is conveniently based near Fistral, Great Western and Towan beach, the gateway to the Gazzle Peninsula and just a one-minute walk from Newquay’s town centre. With car parks close by, eateries up the road and the beach just below us, you’ll be in prime position for a day out to remember your coastal adventures in Newquay.

Towan Beach is one of the most sheltered stretches along Cornwall’s northern coastlines. At low tide, the pristine sand stretches all the way from Newquay’s harbour to the cliffs of Lusty Glaze beach. Seals and dolphins regularly frequent these waters and once out of Towan’s harbour, we’ll lead you along sections of coastline otherwise inaccessible by land.

The ‘Gazzle’ is a sweep of cliff-line steeped in history. Smugglers caves, natural rapids, craggy inlets and hidden coves; our coastline holds a host of secrets just waiting to be discovered.

Together with your expert instructor you will assess the environment, learn the fundamentals of beach and sea safety before starting the most adrenaline fuelled, enjoyable activities to be found in Cornwall.

Every adventure differs depending on the weather and swell conditions of the day.
