Fantastic beach

This beach is so beautiful and clean as the sea washes over it every day. There is no seaweed or rubbish. The beach huts will look fabulous when they are finished.

We used to love this beach when we went to Cornwall with our family. However, it was having some construction work on it at the time. But again, more for the surfing fraternity

Down a steep hill, but taking your time, it can be reached by anyone. Good brakes needed on wheelchairs though. Sea life centre at the bottom, with accessible toilets. Food available too. For the mobile, when the tide is low, you can get to the harbour using the steps by the cliff.

This is a lovely sandy beach. You can also access Lusty Glaze Great western and Towan beaches at times when the tide permits.

A lovely large sandy beach that is nearly surrounded by cliffs making it very sheltered. Quite a few steps to walk down to get there but well worth it.

Amazing beach and with an even amazing view. Was staying at a hotel across it and the views didn't let me down. Can get windy and cool in the evenings but all worth the sunset views.

A large stunning beach in Newquay. Compared the town itself the beaches are a level above. You would be excused for mistaking it for a beach in southern Europe. Clean soft sand, great waves to watch the surfers on and great for long walks exploring.

Located at the northern end of the string of Newquay beaches - deep, broad beach with good waves at the right tide times, and hence popular with serious surfers from 7'ish in the morning to dusk. Not many facilities on the beach - but the whole of the town is adjacent.
