Favourite beach in Newquay

The sea is clear, the sand is golden and clean and you can watch the surfers. Dogs allowed from Nov to March only but winter is my favourite time to visit

Standing on the footpath overlooking the guard rail is the super view of Tolcarne beach with the Atlantic Breakers and the surfers. Magical and a site for sore eyes to a city dweller from the North

A clean and interesting beach just below the main bus route in to Newquay. Not easily accessible however with more than one hundred steps to negotiate. Very good beach for surfers!

Stayed in Newquay for a couple of days at Victoria hotel and this beach is directly below. Beautiful sands and the day we were there in November, virtually deserted. Careful of the tides though, you can get caught out.

There are excellent views of "surfers" riding the waves. You can sit on one of the many benches along the front.

sat in the hotel room watching the sun go down over Tolcarne beach what a beautiful sight. On a morning the sun comes up just as nice.
