Newquays famous beach lived up to expectations... not walking distance to town though really.

Finally, before going I looked everywhere to see if you were allowed BBQs on the beach and couldnt find anything definitive but you CAN have bbqs on Fristal Beach

Learnt to surf on this beach. Considering it was the height of summer the beach was busy enough for it to be pleasant whilst not too busy. The waves where good for surfing and the lifguards where on patrol giving you peace of mind. The only issue was the lack of access due to the big rocks in the middle of the beach. But it just meant a quick adventure over the rocks!

Beautiful beach on a sunny day, I felt like I was on an exotic beach abroad. The atmosphere is also wonderful, with a good pub and facilities, plus ice cream!
