Tucked away in deepest Cornwall, St. Agnes Beach (also called Trevaunance), faces north and has good, powerful waves in the right conditions. Mid tide is best when there are mostly rights. It does tend to get crowded here in summer months as it is a favourite tourist spot and at these times, parking may be difficult even though there is a good sized car park above the beach. However, in the winter months, it's mostly used by the local crew. Good facilities here with showers, the Driftwood Spa Pub and Aggie Surf Shop (run by Chops and Mary Laschelles) and lots of beautiful Cornish scenery, including the famous tin mines which silhouette the landscape. Chops' board factory is based here too and you can find the latest shapes in the shop. Within striking distance of Newquay, and Porthtowan, St. Agnes is an ideal base for the rurally minded surfer.
