“My favourite beach in Newquay”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Best beach in Newquay for families, away from the surfers, nice and sheltered and flat beach, no steps or miles to walk down. Nice ice cream shop right on the beach and across the other side is a shop for drinks, buckets and spades and all your beach essentials!

“One of the best beaches in the UK”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

A large cove / inlet with high sides gives this beach protection from wind, the surrounding area gives scenic views from the coastal path and a great place to explore rock pools, small islands, smaller sandy coves and caves, nature at its best. The car park is on the sand and has toilet facilities adjacent. Blue badge spaces are even provided. There are cafes and RNLI lifeguards. The sand is soft and great for sand castles. The large beach is dramatically enlarged when the tide goes out, the flat sand goes out and out as the water recedes for almost a mile to the point, so never crowded even in holiday season. Flat as far as you can wade out at either low or high tide and with good waves for surfing, body boarding or just swimming and splashing about. A shallow stream runs over the beach and is used as a toddlers paddling area so the beach is good for all ages and states of fitness. A great day out.

“Nice Beach”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

I love this beach, but I don't like the fact that there's actually a car park on the beach, on the sand. I think it should be out od the way somewhere, as it ruins a lovely beach.
