Things to do
Watergate Bay Hotel is so close to the sea you can watch the surfers from the pool. Huge waves roll in from the Atlantic, making the bay one of the finest surfing beaches in all of Cornwall. So if you fancy a slice of the action, you can always book in a surf lesson with the hotel's Extreme Academy.
Alternatively, head to the Swim Club (Watergate Bay's answer to a spa) and take a dip in the pool or relax in a sea view sauna. There's also carefully planned Kids' Zone activities and dinner reservations, meaning you can find time for yourselves with the little ones in tow.
