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.

Compact but beautiful. Very clean Easy to access Family friendly I feel children are quite safe as there is a large area of shallow waters. There is plenty of sand to build sand castles. Coastguards are on the look out during touristy season.

Driving 6-7hours from central London to the British coast, was well worth it!!!. Wonderful place and sunsets for photographers, surfers as well as lovely blue coloured oceans. Best hotel would be the Tolcarne beach apartments😊
