Getting active in north Cornwall

Two surfers in Cornwall

There are lots of ways to enjoy being active on the north Cornwall coast. You’ll find National Trust approved outdoor providers who offer surfing, stand up paddle boarding, coasteering and sea kayaking at a number of locations. Some also offer equipment hire. Safety is the absolute priority for all providers; instructors are fully qualified and operators listed here are licensed by the National Trust.

If you’re looking for something to get your adrenaline flowing then coasteering could be for you. You’ll be scrambling and jumping from rocks into the sea, in some of the most beautiful locations you could imagine.
