Watergate Bay, Cornwall
THE EXPERIENCE Cornwall is famous for its beaches and on a peaceful evening, as the setting sun sends fiery colours across the waves, this two-mile stretch of Watergate Bay is one of the best. A great time to run here is at low tide, when the receding ocean exposes a vast expanse of firm, flat sand. AFTER THE RUN For a special occasion, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall serves classy food and offers stunning views of the bay.
