The small, west-facing beach of Little Fistral is accessible only at low tide. Atop the Towan headland sits a small white 'lookout' building, from which there are wonderful coastal views of Newquay and beyond to be enjoyed.
Newquay is located on the mid north Cornwall coast, around 15 miles (in opposite directions) from both Padstow and Truro. Holiday cottages in Newquay provide a range of self catering holiday options.
A small number of parking spaces are available by the beach but there is a substantially larger car park at the main Fistral Beach (a short and pleasant walk away) which also boasts excellent facilities including a restaurant, toilets, shops and watersports facilities. There is no lifeguard patrol at Little Fistral.
