"A rainy day at the beach is better than a sunny day in the office"
"Rainy days are good for the soul"
"Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain!"


If it's raining you are going to get wet anyway, so a perfect time to learn to surf! The guys at Kingsurf will get you standing on your board and catching a wave in no time! Merlin Farm guests receive £5 off their first lesson. Or why not explore the rugged coastline with Kingcoasteer where you can expect to jump, swim, climb and find hidden caves. Just a few miles away at Retallick Water Park you will find Cornwall's biggest 'total wipeout' style floating inflatable Aqua Park.



Woodland offers shelter from the rain so is always a good option if you fancy getting out to stretch your legs. Explore caves and rock pools on the beach.Take Wellies, waterproofs and a change of clothes and I'm sure you'll have a great time.  Check out pubs nearby to dry off afterwards with a hot chocolate.


Eat Chocolate

Visit Kernow Chocolate Factory at nearby St Eval. Free parking and a coffee shop with a viewing window so you can watch the chocolate bars being made by hand. Great place to stock up on your souvenirs too!

Make Jewellery

Drop in to Mawgan Porth's very own Disco Beads and make some funky beads for yourself or to take home as souvenirs.

Ten Pin Bowling

Atlantic Lanes bowling centre at Trevarrian Holiday Park between Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay. 4 lanes with computerised scoring, optional bumpers for younger children, fully licensed bar, restaurant and free wifi.

Visit the Cinema

Allow Extra Time for Traffic

Allow yourself extra time for getting to places. Everyone takes to their cars in the rain, and at peak times/high season expect delays.
