Get Active in Cornwall

With the weather looking hopeful,
it is a great time to start thinking about getting active this year. There are
many ways to think about your fitness with the wide range of activities
Cornwall has to offer, and of course if you just want to be a spectator there
is also lots to see too! As locals to the area, we have collected a few of our
favourites to give you inspiration.

One to watch – Polo on
the beach


This is a free event, returning
for its ninth year. Taking place on the stunning Watergate Bay beach, the
setting is set to be a pleaser. Every year, the crowds gather to watch the
horses in all their glory. There will be live polo matches and demonstrations
over the weekend with lots of opportunities to get involved. Wit music during
the event to keep the festival feel throughout the evenings. There are
champagne gardens, beer tents and food stalls throughout so there will always
be something to do. Take a look at their blog here to keep up to date
with the latest alerts.

One to try – Dive Newquay


Dive Newquay offer a range of
activities appealing to a wide audience. Whether you are new to diving and just
want a taster, fancy a bit of snorkelling in the beautiful Cornish waters, or
are experienced with diving and want to experience the delights that under
water Cornwall has to offer – Dive Newquay will accommodate all your needs. Aside
from getting active, many people gain a new love for the depths of the ocean
and take the new skill all over the world! Contact them here for more
