You could be on a beach in the Mediterranean. Lovely beach and blue warm sea. It does that full at the weekend but we took our folding chairs out of the car . Sat down and rested. Yes a definite place to look.

The beach is a little way from Newquay but with two decent car parks, good restaurants, including Fifteen Cornwall, and the facilities are excellent. The beach is flat and sandy, very clean, and the sea good for surfing, and swimming. Well worth a visit

Love this beach. Beautiful sands where you can walk for miles when the tides in. Waves for the surfers/body boards plus restaurants and shops at the top of the beach. Great sunsets.

Long sandy beach perfect for a good long walk. Popular with surfers, tuition available. Also a cafe and shop, with toilets between the two car parks. Hugely enjoyable walk, and dogs loved it.

I love this beach - beautiful gorgeous sand and clear water. Waves great for surfing and good facilities but still feels uncommercial and unspoilt. Lovely walks along the cliff top, surf school, lifeguards and super eating places. Toilets are rubbish though - so Council -...More

If you mean food & drink delivered to you on the beach, then it's no. There are a couple of resturants just off the beach
