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.

This is a fantastic beach to walk for surfers, dog walkers and anyone just wanting to take in the wonderful Cornish fresh air! Timed right with low tide it also offers a great walk with your dog to cover the full length.

We were last here in 1985 having been coming every year since the early 70's with our two boys. Spent hours on this beach with them. So this was a nostalgia trip taking in all the places we used to go like Crantock, Pentire, Towan...More

What an amazing place. Feels very special. Clean beach. Some people complaining about paying 20 p to use the toilet. Be thankful, if it wasn't for that they would be closed, like most in Somerset. We were saying what a great idea it is and...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
