Polo on the Beach

Extreme Academy On the Beach Watergate Bay Cornwall TR8 4AA

Surfers make way for horses, as equestrian sports and champagne-fuelled celebrations come to one of Cornwall's top surf beaches. Thousands of spectators flock to the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo on the Beach event, to witness top international polo players pounding the sands of Watergate Bay. With a champagne bar, beach barbecue and expert commentators that can guide even polo virgins through the high-octane chukkas (periods of play), this isn't just for the high-flying equestrian types.
