The best surfing beach in Newquay. Great to see new additions like the shower . Bought a hat in the shop though it looked like a freebie with amber solaire written on it but got charged £4 . Ripped off

If you're looking for a lovely beach with amazing views including tonnes of surfers, then this is the one for you! Fairly long and has some quirky features but is definitely more for surfers.

Great beach if you like surfing and the car park is right next to it. Very good bar/shop/restaurant facilities too. Swimming area is limited and low tide means a bit of a walk to the water.

Excellent beach with great facilities. A nice selection of different foods including some extremely overpriced fish and chips. Car park is pricey though and beware of parking eye.
