Great beach
Sep 2021 • Couples
Such a great beach, clean and spacious, they don't allow dogs, BBQs or alcohol, it's a family beach. We visited a few times whilst on holiday in Newquay.
At the beach you can hire beds, deck chairs and huts if you wish to and there's surf hire, etc.
Beware as the walk down is steep via steps or the narrow road. No parking allowed, its private for residents only. There's a place to grab food and drinks if you've not brought your own. We used it a few times and prices are a little on the high side: £1.60 for a can a Fanta and £2 for a sausage roll, so if you've kids and plan on being here for the day, I'd suggest bringing a picnic!
There are toilets behind the main building which is useful. The RNLI patrol too which is reassuring and the flags show you where is good to swim.
When the tide is out, you can walk the full length of the beach, right from Porth, over to the harbour in the centre of Newquay.
Perfect to explore rock pools and little coves which will be exposed.
Loved it!

Very clean beach
Aug 2021 • Family
Lovely beach. We went here every day with our group of 7. Would recommend taking the steps down but the slope up from the beach - steps very hard work to walk up!! Beach was very clean.

Great family beach
Aug 2021
Family outing with wife, son & partner with 3 grandchildren. Everyone had a great time and I was able to drive my eFoldi mobility scooter down without assistance but the gradient was a bit too much in 2 places and I needed a push

A hidden gem
Jul 2021
How would you ever learn about Tolcarne Beach unless someone told you? Maybe the reason for that is everyone wants to keep it secret !!!

Lovely beach
Aug 2021 • Family
This beach was outside the hotel (stayed at premier inn) so very handy. There are some steep steps but kids (8&6) managed going down and back up - they moaned a bit going up..
Beach was lovely and clean. We first went when tide was out and we got into the coves and it was lovely. The next day was v windy so less enjoyable.. there was always at least 1 lifeguard on duty, so always felt safe.

Pleasant alcove beach
Jul 2021
Tolcarne beach was a very short distance from our hotel.
We spent one evening there watching the sunset and relaxing.
A very nice little beach, please be aware if going on foot there are lots of steps down to this alcove beach.
