Great beach. Excellent facilities. Very big so not too crowded at lower tides. Multiple car parks. Some very close and some a bit further away which may not suit everyone due to uphill walk. Cafe, restaurant, hotel, pub, surf schools all within 200 yards. Great...More

We visited in August to find this a first-rate beach with miles of soft golden sand and surfing. Also has a restaurant, bars and is a great place to get some surfing tuition. Parking is available nearby via 'Parking Eye' - beware of this outfit...More

Long & wide beautiful clean & sandy beach. Very popular with surfers and plenty of surf hire shops. It’s so long you can easily find plenty of space, dog friendly areas too, don’t forget bucket & spade for the kids, recommended

Enjoyed a beautiful day here with my family, views are stunning. Was a hot day and there was a lovely breeze and despite sun cream I burned badly, just a warning. The shop going down to the beach selling drinks etc is a rip off...More

Walk for 10 minutes along the beach from the main steps and you will be guaranteed of a quiet spot well away from the crowds. Good surf. Spotlessly clean and great views all round. Nice alternative to the crowds of Fistral Bay

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
