An absolutely gorgeous beach, genuinely breathtaking. I've never tried surfing before but after watching others I'm going to give it a go next time! Food and drink available, we went to The Stable situated right on the beach itself. Beautiful part of Cornwall.

Beautiful beach to visit, great for the surfers. Lots of fun with the family. Defo a place to visit over and over again

A well maintained public beach which is clean with life guards. Good local amenities such as cafes, bars and surf shops. One bad experience in my large group with pizzas from the Fistral Beach Bar and Pizzeria but overall a good place.

Absolutely cracking beach for a lovely romantic walk. Sea, sand and sun. Hand in hand, if your at fistral beach hotel end of the beach and walk towards the headland you will find Rick Steins fish and chip restaurant

Very windy long sandy beach which is great if you want to watch the surfers or visit the rock pools at the end. Parking is fairly pricey and you have to key in your car reg? £1:80 for an hour. You can hire body suits,...More
