Discover water activities in Cornwall

Hélène Chaussavoine

Going on holiday to Cornwall is always a good idea and especially when the sun is shining. As we have been lucky with beautiful weather for nearly a month now, we thought we would give you some ideas on what activities you can do on the water with the family when holidaying in Cornwall.

St Ives Surf School

Only a few steps aways from Porthmeor Beach and your luxury Sail Lofts cottage,  St Ives Surf School is the perfect place for beginners or experienced swimmer. If you are tempted to try surfing for the first time or even paddleboarding, St Ives School will provide all equipments and will assist you during the whole duration of the lesson to make sure everything goes well. If you are staying in one of our self-catering accomodation, make sure to mention the Sail Lofts as they kindly offer reduced rates to all our guests.


Boats rides

As you walk along the harbour front, you will come across many activities available on the water for you to make the most of the sea surrounding us. We recommend you to try the boat ride with Dolly P as they are the oldest boat company in St Ives and will show you the Cornish coastline like you've never seen it before.

Stithians Country Lake

This beautiful Lake located about 40 minutes away from your luxury St Ives apartment makes the perfect destination for adventurers who would like to try on some new activities. Choose your favourite between windsurfing, canoeying or kayaking and experience the countryside on still water with professionals who will make sure everyone is having the best time.

Lizard Adventure

Offering activities for children as young as 4, Lizard Adventure is the perfect set up for a family day out. Located in the beautiful area of Lizard peninsula, you will be able to choose activities to relax or you may want to go for a real adrenaline rush experience you will remember for life. From climbing, paddle boarding or learn surviving skills, there is plenty to choose from.
