Gwithian's only beachside café, bar and surf hire -

The time has come again to wish all our amazing staff good luck with their next steps in life. Some are off to Uni, some to college, one to the Navy, others to new school years and several will be with us for the winter to look after all our customers. They have all been endlessly cheerful, have worked their little socks off and been a pleasure to work with.

We are all taking a well deserved rest and will be closing the cafe, shop & board wetsuit hire from 23 September and reopening for long weekends from 15 October.

Finally our thanks to you all for supporting, laughing and sharing the magic of Sunset Surf.

With love, The Sunset Surf Team X

We like to think that everything we do embodies the laid-back Cornish lifestyle. From our use of Cornish suppliers, to employing local staff, we not only support our community, but also give our customers great, fresh food and efficient service. This is made even more enjoyable by our incredible view of Gwithian beach.


From a full English to moules marinières, our extensive menu offers plenty of choice. Everything is cooked fresh from local suppliers; so if you have any dietary requirements, just let one of the team know.
