Surfing at sunset offers optimal conditions due to lighter offshore winds or calm conditions, typically occurring when land and ocean temperatures are similar during these times. Evening sessions help avoid mid-day onshore winds, creating choppy waves. Additionally, fewer surfers are present during these times, with sunset surfers benefiting from diminishing beach crowds. Surfing during sunset also reduces sun exposure to harmful UV rays and offers a serene, stress-reducing experience. Making time for surfing at these hours maximizes valuable daylight, making it an ideal choice for catching the best waves.
Coasteering is an adventure activity that involves traversing along the rugged coastline, combining swimming, climbing, and cliff jumping. But imagine experiencing the thrill of coasteering as the sun begins to set, casting a warm golden glow over the cliffs and sea. Sunset coasteering takes this already exhilarating activity to a whole new level. As you explore hidden caves, scramble up craggy rocks, and leap into the shimmering waters, the beauty of the sunset adds an enchanting touch to the adventure. The changing colors in the sky create a breathtaking backdrop, intensifying the sense of awe and excitement.
Newquay’s coastline is a kayaker’s dream, with its pristine beaches, secluded coves, and towering cliffs.

Glide along the tranquil waves, marveling at the rugged beauty of the cliffs and the rich marine life beneath you. Paddle through sea caves, their mysterious depths beckoning you to explore. The rhythmic motion of your kayak, combined with the serenity of the surrounding nature, creates a perfect harmony that rejuvenates the mind and soul. And when the sun begins its descent, casting vibrant hues across the horizon, the experience becomes nothing short of magical.
