Plenty of surfer dudes on Fistral beach. Nice walks, dogs are only allowed out of season (holiday season, not dog season :-) )

My room overlooked Fiscal beach, wonderful views. Surfers there from first light till dark. Must be one of Cornwall's best beaches .

Gentle sloping beach, great waves, plenty of catering at either end of the beach - absolutely stunning. There's free car parking on the Esplanade to the South (some restrictions for vehicles other than cars) and P&D parking at the Headland end.

If you're visiting Newquay then you must visit Fistral Beach. Aside from being one of the best surfing beaches in Europe it is also a stunning beach to just sit and take in the scenery of the beautiful Cornish coastline. I've been coming here on...More

Lovely beach with beautiful views! We had a nice fish and chip lunch there but there not much more to do there. The parking is a bit pricey but worth it for the walk along the beach. Perfect place to take dogs.

Thank Gemma X

Highly recommend a park called HENDRA approximately 10 mins drive or a bus stop outside. May not be the cheapest around tho. Worth a look.
