“Hit the beach here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Excellent clean and family/singles friendly. Car park a rip off. The advertising stating you MUST buy a ticket as it uses vehicle registration is tiny and I missed this on my first visit, my land lord kindly told me! I'm now waiting for a letter from the council expecting payment. Don't let this put you off from going. Beautiful beach. Brilliant waves and lots to see

“Surfers paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Great beach
We set up our little tent and stayed all day, parking is. £7.20 all day but you can get your money's worth by setting up camp and making a day out of it!
There is a little beach cafe with ice creams and surf shops on the beach too. It is also walking distance into Newquay if you wanted to have a little wander round

Busy beach but very clean. Good atmosphere and children are able to surf and body board safely.
The surf shops are a bonus
Only issue encountered is parking a and difficulty in available spaces

“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Good bar, few shops, toilets and great watching surfers - life guards on patrol doing a brill job!

Staff in the bar were very friendly - lots of surfing conversation and was good to see all the shop staff getting on around a common hobby - a real buzz which made you want to be a surfer.
