Like all of the beaches in Newquay it is clean with lovely sand, great for kids and patrolled by lifeguards. None of the beaches are really easy to access because of the height of the cliffs, but if you just want to wander along the top and look down the views are stunning.

We visited early morning, but had a hotel room overlooking this beach and it never seemed to be crowded. Quiet beach popular with surfers and early morning swimmers. Extremely clean. Beautiful rock formations on the cliffs surrounding the beach. 'Sharp' rather than soft sand, except below the water line. There were some amazingly beautiful stranded jellies when we visited. Great... More

This is a great beach with superb bar, restaurant and apartments looking over straight onto the sand, there are steps from the main road at the top of the cliff and a sloping road coming down, the beach is clean and tidy, excellent food and drinks served from the above outlets, local knowledge will see you entering a cave to...

Just visited for a walk but the beach is clean, the sand is nice and the sea is very pleasant. There are nearby food & drink and toilet facilities and very near the town centre. Like most of the beaches in Cornwall it's very nice. Could stay as short as you like or the whole day.

Great beach with Loverly views. There is a cafe and bar and the beach huts look brilliant. It's not to far to walk to the sea and once the sea goes out it reveals lots of little cave and great places to go fishing with nets. Only issue is the walk down, you can take the 100+ steps or walk... More

Best break we have had due to the good weather for 5 out of 7 days. Apartment was well presented and the sunsets to die for.
