FOR ALL ABILITIES: Gwithian, Cornwall
Gwithian beach is a sheltered beach break overlooking the town of St Ives – it’s a great spot for beginners and more experienced surfers alike.
Just around the corner, you’ll find Godrevy, a slightly more exposed wave with long peeling lefts and rights. The paddle out can be pretty epic on big days.
Only a 10 minute walk from Gwithian beach is Godrevy Park Caravan Club Site, a popular camping ground for surfers wanting to be near the action. The campsite offers views over St Ives Bay and is just a stone’s throw from St Michael’s Mount, worth visiting to explore the ancient castle walls.
A pitch at Godrevy Park Caravan Club campsite starts from £18.70 per person per night.
