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.
Sheltered by tall cliffs, Lusty Glaze is one of Cornwall’s finest family beaches. The beach lies in a picturesque north-west-facing cove, a setting which provides a safe, family-friendly environment. Facilities at the beach, which is privately owned, are excellent and include a café, crèche, shop, restaurant, bar, toilets and watersports hire. Beach huts are also available to hire.
The cove is home to the National Lifeguard Training Centre and lifeguards patrol the beach during peak seasons. A small car park is situated by the beach but parking in Newquay town centre is preferable in the summer months. Access to the beach is via (difficult in places) cliff steps or via neighbouring Tolcarne Beach at low tide. There is no disabled access.
