On the water

The first in our Short Stories video series, 'on the water' is a short look at just one of the benefits of being so close to the sea.

Kicking off the Short Stories video series, which shares a little of what we love most about our local area, this episode joins a group as they take to the calm waters of Port Quin in sea kayaks and paddle boards.

Being in and around the water like this is a hands-down must during a stay in Cornwall. Sea kayaking opens up the rugged Cornish coastline to a whole new perspective, exposing the hidden caves, inaccessible beaches and bountiful wildlife that populate our beautiful home.

Offering the very best equipment rental, as well as expertly guided tours for kayaking and coasteering, we recommend the nearby Cornish Coastal Adventures as a great place to start your seafaring adventure. With years of experience around the stunning, calm waters of Port Quin and beyond, you can’t find an easier and safer way to get out there.

Based on the edge of Polzeath, we’re perfectly positioned for you to enjoy your own time out on the water. Polzeath beach on a calm day offers some lovely scenery for a lazy paddle, with other great nearby locations to explore including Greenaway, Daymer Bay, Rock and Porthilly, Lundy Bay, and of course Port Quin.
