Such a perfect beach with lots of space for dogs to run about. I had my first ever surfing lesson and absolutely loved it.

Always visit Watergate Bay when we are in Newquay, great sitting in the cafe watching the surfers. Attracts a lot of dog walkers so if you don’t like dogs it’s not a place to visit! Steep walk back up to the car park but well worth the effort

Lovely flat beach, particularly when the tide is out. Used by lots of surfers, and lots of dog owners. The majority of whom were very good at controlling their pets, unfortunately this isn't always the case. A bit spoilt by my family having to avoid a couple of dog turds here and there, and with dogs sprinting a hundred miles an hour for a smelly tennis ball.

Love walking my dog here and then popping into the beach hut for a coffee or lunch...parking will cost you though!

Huge beach pure sand some great beaches around Newquay but I like this one....when parking there are 2 car parks beware the one beachside is private and has cameras all over it it's dearer than the council one and they will find you if you try to cheat....use the council one ....think it's about 3 quid for 3 hours might be more....I've heard you can now by a Cornish parking pass for the week and park in any country cup car park in Cornwall it could work out cheaper......Cornwall l parking is not cheap!I just hope they don't price the car out of cornwall!!!!!!!!have fun
