Fistral Beach is possibly the most popular beach in Newquay, Cornwall, and is a world class surfing venue. Fistral’s fine, sandy beach lies away from the hustle and bustle of Newquay’s town centre. A large, north-west-facing beach on the north Cornwall coast, it is the centre of the UK’s surf scene.
The large, sandy beach at Holywell Bay Beach is located around 6 miles west of Newquay, on the north Cornwall coast. The mile-long beach has disabled access from the car park and is dog-friendly. The clean, safe waters make Holywell Bay a popular destination for surfers and swimmers.
Lusty Glaze Beach is the eastern-most of four Newquay beaches which combine to form a glorious mile-long plus stretch of sand, the others being Great Western, Tolcarne and Towan Beach. The beach is situated in an area with conditions to suit sun and fun-seekers, swimmers and surfers alike.
Tregurrian Beach, in Watergate Bay, is a 2-mile long stretch of golden sands, around 3 miles from the town centre of Newquay, Cornwall. The wide expanses of sand and proximity to Newquay make Watergate Bay a popular destination for families. The bay’s Atlantic swells make it equally popular with watersports enthusiasts, and the beach hosts annual surfing events.
