Such a beautiful beach and close to the town centre. Lots of different ways to walk down from the town. Best beach we went to. Lots of space in September.

Avoid surf hire and adjoining shop!
May 2021 • Family
Avoid the surf hire shop and the shop attached to it if you are self conscious regarding you're appearance. The owner and what I believe to be his son were both stood near the shack making fun of a larger female and her partner in a wet suit. It was appalling to hear and we obviously did not stick around to use there service. Shame on you when you rent people wet suits, it's bad enough as it is wearing one when you are slightly over weight!

Nice little beach
Mar 2021 • Family
Nice enough beach right in the middle of Newquay. It's easy to access down a fairly steep road. That said the harbour beach is much harder work to get to so this is the easier option if you are not into steep steps or have little ones with you.

Its backed by blue reef and other attractions including a number of pubs and places to eat.

Unique beach in the heart of Newquay
Oct 2020 • Friends
Towan Beach is one of the many beaches in and around Newquay but is quite unique in that on it’s eastern side is ‘the island’ which is connected to the mainland by a suspension footbridge. I have visited the beach several times in the past in good weather but on our latest visit the weather was foul and we decided not to go on the beach itself but to view it from above from The Crescent. Despite the weather there were quite a lot of people trying to catch the surf. Towan Beach is a great beach to visit whilst in Newquay but probably best appreciated when the weather is favourable.

Towan Beach.
Jul 2020
Largest beach and with the island house. Rockpools and safe bathing. Lifeguards/RNLI on patrol. Great for training and beginner surfers. When the tides out it is possible to walk to Lusty Glaze Beach but watch the tide. Bars, shops and a great chippy. No social distancing problems.

All the boys were very welcoming and helpful! Very good price and all the surf gear we hired was fantastic. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back. Cheers

Childhood memories
Feb 2020
Love Newquay and particularly Towan Beach - we used to come here when I was a child. Great memories of this beach and the rock pool at the foot of the rocks. The sand is gorgeous and this is a great place to bring your family. Be aware of the time when the tide is due in. Don't get caught out when the tide is coming in and get off the beach well before that>
