Great waves along a long beach for surfing and body boarding. Stay within life guard flags. Life guards monitor beach all day. Great to go to the Ripcurl annual surf festival with dudes and gals from all over the world. Lots of stalls, bars and food. But can get really busy on roads and car parks at this peak time.

Surf shops on beach had some lovely stuff in the sales. Had a walk along and there was lots of foam being blown up from the beach. Stunning vista.

You can follow the path all around the cove and just stop to watch the waves or surfers. The beach is incredible and there are plenty of rocks to... More

I took my family to Fistral for the day, none of the children were massively confident in the sea. After a few hours, they were loving the fun of body boarding and we struggled to get them out of the water. Not only did we have two older children, we had a younger child (1) who loved it. The tide... More

I then got a parking fine saying I had overstayed, when I... More

We like visiting Fistral Beach when in the area as it's nice for walking and watching the waves and surfers. Even if it's cold there will usually be some! Disappointed that all of the shops and cafes along the front apart from two were closed. Beware of the car parking cameras and make sure you don't get a ticket!
