Loved it. What more can I say. Visited Fistral with family, 2 young children and the dog. Gorgeous beach with corse sand and glorious views. Fistral Beach has something for everyone. It was amazing to sit in the sun and watch the surfers and boarders. To watch surf school and beach safety lessons. So lovely to see active life guards... More

Lovely beach to walk around, take pics and breath in fresh air! It was too cold/windy to go swimming but the beach has nice flat, sandy areas where you can relax. Highly recommended making the walk, under 10 mins from town centre.

Fistral beach stole my breath. It was utterly stunning. Surfing, bodyboarding, tanning, relaxing. Whatever your beach habits, fistral is the place to do it. I hope to return again and again.

Visited here this morning with my Son and Husband and had a fabulous time. Great waves. Weather was unsettled but at least we managed to get 45 mins in the Sea. Wetsuits a must. Both boys had full wetsuits and I had a half wetsuit. Arms and legs a little cold but well worth the effort. Cafes and shops there.... More

Stayed here in Newquay in May 2017, weather was absolutely beautiful, which made Fistral Beach even more lovely. Clean sands looking out over a wonderful bay, with lots of surfers. Was delighted to see a number of fantastic sunsets over the bay.
