7x World Record Adventure Stand-up Paddler
Brendon Prince 7x World Record Adventure Stand-up Paddler

If there were a jedi council for paddleboarding, it would be led by Brendon Prince of The Long Paddle, who has paddled the entire British Isles on his SUP. Brendon knows these waters inside out and specialises in water safety too, so you'll be in safe hands.

During your 3-night Cornwall Paddleboarding Break, Brendon will work with you to develop technnique and understand adventure paddling, as you explore the sheltered shimmering splendour of south Cornwall's hidden coves, shipwrecks and secret beaches.

The beach
Captivating Cornwall The beach

The subtropical gardens of St Michaels Resort spill onto the splendour of Gyllyngvase Beach, one of the UK's top beaches for paddleboarding and sea swimming. The calm crystal-clear waters off Gylly Beach are perfect for paddleboarders of any experience and are a great striking-off point if you're more advanced, with shipwrecks, secret beaches and hidden coves all within easy reach.

The hotel
St Michaels Resort The hotel

St Michaels is one of the south west's leading resorts, a luxury four star Falmouth hotel, right on the beach, with extensive Health Club, award-winning spa and two cracking restaurants serving up the best of Cornwall's natural larder. Expect a large serving of coastal calm as you settle into our Cornish wellness resort.

Improve your adventure paddling
Dig for victory Improve your adventure paddling

The retreat includes enough shore and sea-based sessions to ensure you'll finish the retreat with a strong understanding of water and how to adventure paddle with confidence and safety, plus lots of time out on the water meeting local marine life, exploring secret beaches and discovering the beauty of the south Cornish coast.

Relax
Soak it in Relax

The Cornwall Paddleboard Retreat includes time to enjoy a beach yoga session with our instructors plus an opportuntity to soak for an hour or two in the spa's centrepiece hydrothermal experience, complete with 21 custom aqua-massage stations, the world's first Cornish sea salt steam room, herbal sauna and ocean-facing hot tub.

What to expect on your paddleboarding break


Over four days, Brendon will lead you through the basics of good water safety and paddleboard technique. You'll explore the local waters by paddleboard, with a little sea swimming too, plus lots of time to enjoy the luxury spa, extensive Health Club and delicious local flavours served up in the two resort restaurants.

This is a small group break, perfect for solo travellers and couples alike. There'll be time to take in the sights and sounds alone if you wish, while much of the active coastal break features group activities. 

Experience and equipment
This active coastal break is suitable for anyone who has basic paddleboarding experience. Participants should be confident swimmers but no experience in the sea is necessary. If you are uncertain about suitability, please speak to a member of our reservations team on 01326 312707.

Equipment can be provided (though this is not included in the prices quoted on these pages), please ask at the time of booking.

Coastal Waters
The itnerary is weather dependent and subject to last minute changes. Every effort will be made to maximise the adventure paddle experience but 'group safety' is paramount.

Paddler Ability
These experiences are not for totally new paddlers. You should have paddled for at least 6 months with confidence to mount and re-mount your board in moderate conditions.

Falmouth
St Michaels Resort lies on the edge of the vibrant harbour town of Falmouth. This isn't your average sleepy Cornish seaside locale: Falmouth features one of the world's deepest harbours, a hive of activity for luxury yachts, small ferries and countless small local craft and fishing vessels who ply the sheltered inshore waters.

Alongside the harbour runs a highstreet packed with decent restaurants, independent boutiques and proper coffee shops.

Falmouth is also the perfect spot to head out and explore the wilder south west of Cornwall or the surf-tastic north coast: both of which lie in easy reach.
