Stayed in Newquay for a couple of days at Victoria hotel and this beach is directly below. Beautiful sands and the day we were there in November, virtually deserted. Careful of the tides though, you can get caught out.

There are excellent views of "surfers" riding the waves. You can sit on one of the many benches along the front.

sat in the hotel room watching the sun go down over Tolcarne beach what a beautiful sight. On a morning the sun comes up just as nice.

This is a great skimboarding beach at high tide and a great place to go with the family and do some body boarding

We never went down here, but had an excellent view over it from the street above. Tranquil just to look at it.
