Gwithian's only café, bar and surf school

Sunset Surf Café is a family owned and run business, serving home-cooked, locally sourced food, Cornish coffees and drinks that go down perfectly out on the decking in the sunshine.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our food, and on our efficient team and their service.

Don’t forget our absolutely stunning view.

Our Surf School is run by Global Boarders who have been providing award-winning surf lessons across Cornwall for 15 years.

And don't forget

Picture Perfect

Sitting above Gwithian beach, our café overlooks the golden dunes that lead down onto the huge expanse of sand below. When the sun is shining and we can hear the gentle noise of the sea, there’s no better place than on our terrace.

Beach Bums

Aside from the café and bar, we are also home to a beachside shop selling everything you need for a day on the beach. If lazing in the sun isn’t your thing, why not head downstairs and try your hand at a surfing lesson with Global Boarders?

4 Legged Friends

We are pleased to say that we welcome all well behaved dogs on leads. From October to April, dogs are allowed on the beach, and from May to September they can run amok on the sand after 7pm.
