It's such a lovely beach for surfing and jumping in waves. For someone that likes jumping in waves I recommend it.

Went today to go bodyboarding. The beach wad clean and spacious. The lifeguards were on patrol until 18:00. When the tide went out you can go really far out to sea with the water still being at your waist. Perfect šŸ‘Œ.

Another one of Newquay's good beaches and a little more accessible than both Tolcarne and Lusty Glaze. Excellent clean sands....the tide cleanses them twice a day. It is centrally placed and easily reached from both the beachfront hotels and the town centre!

Lovely beach to view from above or venture down to the sands. RNLI are on constant watch there too. There is a bar and Cafe there too. The climb up the hill can be exhausting, but it is well worth the effort
