What a gorgeous beach! When the tide is out loads of caves to explore - when it comes in loads of surfers to watch. Great for kids, food and drink on site - an excellent beach

Newquay has plenty keep you occupied. Was surprised at the number of tea shops in the town. Very helpful friendly local people.. Nice walks along the cliff tops above the beaches. Easy access to Tolcarne Beach. Stayed in a hotel only a few mins walk from the steps down to the beach.

Lots of walks along the cliffs plus a Tesco store is only a block away if you want anything, The hotel has parking available to the rear of the hotel (great feature) It is not near the town centre but it is very quiet.

We stayed at the nearby Hotel Bristol. It is a steep slope or steps down to the beach but worth it. It was not too crowded in early September though the weather was very warm. My partner managed a swim on two afternoons. At certain states of the tide there can be a slope into the water. We also called... More
