The gentle slope of the beach creates waves which are perfect for those who are finding their surfing feet. Beginners will appreciate the excellent surf schools – try Surf’s up, or George’s, who will supply you with all you need to know to start to catch those waves. Wave riders can be reassured of lifeguard coverage during the summer, making this a safe and fun place to build up your confidence.Polzeath for photographers and artists
