What more can I say about this amazing beach. Surfing and sun as well as brilliant facilities. There's not much more to say about this place but it is beautiful.

We came here really to eat at Rick Steins. We had a nice walk along the coastline, but the main beach area itself was quite messy with a lot of rubbish about.

Visit this beach annually, what a great clean dog friendly beach. Nice sand, good surf. Great for bodyboarding and safe for families as permanent coastguard patrols and swimming flags. Great selection of shops and snack/food places and Fistral Beach Bar is the best!
