A very clean beach; as all the others appeared to be. However there is a steep descent to the beach which obviously means a hike back up and therefore not suitable for those with walking problems.

This is a lovely beach. When the tide is out, you can explore the hidden coves around the sides of the rocks. The beach gently slopes down, and I saw no evidence of any dangerous rips so I was happy in the sea with my kids even when there were no lifeguards on duty. It is a nice surfing spot,... More

Clean beach. Beach shop a bit pricey. The beach is best in the morning before the crowds arrive make sure you check the tide for the day.

Easy access down a tarmac road to beach or steep steps if you prefer. Great in the summer with restaurant and bar on the beach. In winter it is deserted and great for dog walking.

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.
