Beaches around Newquay

  • Towan Beach
    Beach Road, Newquay TR7 3LN
    Whilst the name of this beach is Towan, many people mistakenly call it 'Town beach' as it is so close to Newquay's town centre. Set at the bottom of the aptly named Beach Road, Towan beach is a stretch of the same fine golden sand found all along Newquay Bay.
  • Fistral Beach
    Headland Road, Newquay TR7 1HY
    Newquay, if not Cornwall's, most popular beach and at the very heart of the British surfing scene.
    The beach is a wide expanse of golden sand with the headlands of Pentire and Towan to the south and north respectively.
  • Watergate Bay
    Newquay, TR8 4AA

  • Tolcarn Beach
