Great beach with plenty of space, good surfing and bodyboarding and great sunsets. We always come in from the North end where there is plenty of parking and food and drink choices. Southern end looks quieter.

Extremely windy beach! Patrolled and was clean. Due to the amount of surfers and body board users I'd probably recommend young families to go elsewhere. On the other hand perfect for water activities!

Lovely experience of this beach once again, clean, but very busy! We sat on the dunes and caught some rays on one of the hottest days. It was beautiful.

My husband and I have been to Newquay a few times and we always find time to go to Fistral Beach. It is clean, well maintained and the lifeguards were very observant and informative. The facilities around the beach were good too- especially the pizza place!

Surf sun sea sand... What more do you want!? The single most amazing beach for watching sunsets, as the sun dips into the ocean here every single day of the year. Gets very very busy indeed in summer time with holiday crowds and personally I think there are better family/sunbathing beaches nearby. Can't we leave this beach to the surfers,... More

The tide goes out a LONG way, but the beach is very flat and the body-boarding is great fun! The lifeguards are fantastic, always vigilant. The near-by car parks are small, so they fill up early - but there are quite a few around. It can be quite a walk to the beach from some of the car parks, so... More
