If you want a beach that is quitter than the more popular Fistral beach in Newquay, then maybe this is the beach for you. This is perhaps more family orientated.

We had a lovely bay room at the Beresford Hotel and it was lovely to see the surfers on this bay as the Surfers Hotel is near to the Beresford Hotel this is something you should not miss.

One of the many bays that are formed when the tide comes in at Newquay but once on Tolcarne Beach you do not want or need to wander very far/. The beach cafe/restaurant provides all types of sustenance and the sands are golden and clean. There are beach huts to rent as well as sun loungers and wet suits for... More

Tolcarne beach is beautiful. A lovely shoreline, with lovely little nooks and crannies in the rocks. We enjoyed a lovely paddle at the watersedge. But oh boy... those steps. A lift would have been much appreciated.

Just as beautiful as Fistral beach.. but not as wide/long. Well worth a visit with or without children. Walking distance from city centre.

A lovely beach that is family friendly. See the amazing sight of the 2 houses on the island. The Sea life Centre is also situated here. Not really any parking near so not advised for people who can't walk far. There are usually hair wrap people and henna tattoos available at the entrance to the beach.
