Had a lovely week in Newquay spent looking out at the beautiful views from Tolcarne Beach. Very clean and picturesque. Saw a lot of dogs during our stay :) The walk down is very steep however extremely worth it!

Loved this beach! We had a surfing lesson with Fistral Beach Surf School here yesterday and had an absolutely amazing time! Gorgeous beach in the winter, can't imagine how beautiful it will be when summer rolls around.

We go to this beach a lot, excellent for quitter surfing. Dog friendly and right next to town. Rent a board from the place on the beach - they are great :-)

This beach is located in the centre of Newquay with walkabout bar overlooking it. It's a clean beach and nice soft sand. It's not as good as fistral beach but still nice and not so much of a walk. As most beaches in Newquay you will find surfers here most of the time.
