Fistral beach is simply beautiful with a nice array of places to eat and drink. A long stretch of sandy beach and a sunny day is all you need. Even put some sand in a bottle to take home :)

Visited out of season, empty car parks, poor weather, walked the beach (OK), watched the surfer life guards, visited the loos and got a penalty parking fine from a Birmingham based company. We may have overstayed 10 minutes!!!!, but £60 is a fu**ing rip off....More

One of the best beaches in Newquay. Mostly if you are a surfer!! Pets are allowed. Lots of fun and good restaurantes in the area. Headland hotel is right there if you need a place to stay nearby.

For those who are new to Newquay this is a must visit. Out of peak season is obviously the best time to visit due to less crowds. If you can walk down even better parking limited and means you can have a drink at one...More

Lovely, friendly beach. Plenty of shops nearby to rent wind breaks, deck chairs etc. Plenty of spaces to sit out of wind and direct sunlight.

Fistral Beach in Newquay must be one of the best beaches in Britain if not Europe. Beautiful sand and pebbles, dramatic cliffs and rock outcrops battered by dramatic Atlantic rollers. Small complex of restaurants including a Rick Stein fish and chip shop provides all your...More
