Watergate Bay (Cornish: Porth Tregoryan, meaning cove at Coryan's farm) is a bay located two miles north of Newquay on the B3276 Newquay to Padstow road near the village of Tregurrian in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It faces the Atlantic Ocean. The two mile long, sandy beach and exposed north westerly location is a popular location for water sports, kite flying, and sand art. In May, 2007, it played host to the English Nationals Surfing Championships.[1] The last owners of the beach were John and Valerie Trotter.
