Where we are

Sunset Surf is located just a short 5 minute walk from the golden sands of Gwithian Beach, making us the ideal location from which to enjoy the miles of beautiful beach & surf between Hayle Rivermouth and the Red River at Godrevy.

The beach & surrounding area is popular with dog walkers, surfers, cyclists, kite-surfers, stand-up paddleboarders & SW coastal path walkers alike…

We welcome anyone with sandy feet & a smile!
