The Gazzle is part of Towan Head, one of Newquay’s most beautiful areas, teeming with wildlife such as seals, seagulls, falcons and cormorants. This is our preferred route as it allows us to create differing levels of challenge depending on the groups ability. From extremely difficult to child friendly, it has it all, as well as being sheltered from the westerly swells and prevailing south-westerly winds.
The area also holds historical features such as Newquay’s old lifeboat house and slipway. You will walk down what was once the steepest lifeboat slipway in Britain when it came into operation in the late 1800’s . We will work our way around the coastline, traversing the cliffs, swimming from coves and looking for places to explore. We practice jumping from the cliffs starting from a few feet and building up to some higher jumps – the highest being 30 – 35 feet (10 metres) but only if you are happy and confident to give it a go!
