Not an easy beach to get to if you have mobility problems, as there is a lot of steps or a long ramp to get down.

We stayed here in June 2016 in the cabins and it was gorgeous. Our 2nd year away and we will always visit here. Staff are great and the location is brilliant. Only downside is the hundreds of steps down but good to keep you fit lol.

Fantastic beach, great sand, and the water is really clean. The waves when the tide is coming in are awesome and great fun to jump into, or surf! There's food just off the beach and you can rent swimsuites, beach huts, surfboards and more.

Lovely location with stunning views and a great little beach. Great walks on the beach and when the tide is out you can walk round to other beaches.

Lovely beach, bar and sea. Thoroughly like this beach just a bit of a trek down the steps to get to it but its worth it when you get there

Well worth the walk down to this lovely beach. We found a hidden gem called 'The Breaks' where we had a most fantastic breakfast. Looking forward to re visiting this year.(see separate review)

The first challenge is getting to the beach as it is accessed by walking down steps or the road. We walked down early evening and it was very popular. There was a restaurant at the beach which seemed quite busy. The beach was alway popular during had day time as surf school is big business in Newquay!

Beaches are beautiful and full of sand, wasn't keen on having dogs on the beach and all the toilets were locked and permanently closed, which was off putting as the beach itself is lovely.
