About ElementalUK
ElementalUK is a Cornish adventure centre offering a range of watersports that bring you face to face with the elements. Our aim is to help you get the most from immersing yourself in the challenges and thrills of the natural world while learning valuable skills and having fun. Whatever activity you choose to do with us, you'll find that Elemental UK has an immaculate safety record, an array of state-of-the-art equipment, a fabulous location and a team of happy and dedicated staff to make your experience one to remember. Tolcarne is an amazing location, the jewel in Newquay's crown. Set below the medieval Barrowfield burial sites and just a short walk from the town centre, it is a large crescent shaped private beach with super-soft golden sand and safe, traffic-free pedestrian access either by steps or a sloping road. The beach is the ideal spot to try lots of watersports and land activities, and you'll find ElementalUK's HQ right on the beach (head left to the far end of the beach as you get to the bottom of the steps). Changing rooms, lockers, showers and toilet facilities are all available to our clients. Getting to us is simple. If you are coming to Newquay by train turn right when you come out of the station turn right and walk up the main road. The bus stop is at the top of the beach and bus routes 501, 510, 521, 527, 556, 585, 586, 587, 597 stop here. The beach is a short walk from the town centre and access is via some steep steps or the sloping beach road. There is no dedicated car park at Tolcarne, but free on-street parking is available at various locations nearby, and there are several pay and display car parks in the area. Please note: Dogs are banned from Tolcarne Beach from Easter Day to September 30th.
