Day 2: Fishermans Cove to Portreath to Newquay

Surf Break at PortreathAwoke early on my birthday to the sound of large waves close by – surf conditions had arrived during the night! Packing up quickly I set off making a successful passage through the surf break on first attempt. I caught the tidal stream around to Portreath where I landed on the most sheltered spot on the beach. Body boarders were out in force making the most of the excellent surf conditions.

Mulled around on the beach gobbling up a tasty cheeseburger before catching the tidal stream again in the afternoon which would take me around the coast towards Newquay. En route I passed Porthtowan and then confused conditions around St Agnes Head. Onward I paddled across Perran bay then past several surf beaches (which I didn’t fancy trying to land on). I finally rounded Towan head and into the welcomingly calm waters of Newquay harbour.

I celebrated my birthday with a steak and bottle of Corona at a harbourside restaurant.
