The beach has very easy access, with a car park opposite. It's got a gradual slope to the sea, with a river on the right hand side which is very safe for youngsters. As a bonus, there is the famous pub on the beach, The...More

Lovely flat beach, wonderful for children, easy access and no dogs in the summer months for the children who are not comfortable with dogs arround. Plenty of other beaches for dogs.

The dog loved running on the beach, nice little pub right next to it too. The river that runs beside can be strong if the tide is coming in, but thats easy to manage with common sense.

Small car park on beach. Sandy, sheltered and less commercialised than others in Newquay. RNLI Lifeguards to advise and keep you safe in season. No dogs (seems to be ignored) in Summer months.

Lovely clean beach ideal for anyone with mobility problems. No steps on one side, just a ramp. Plenty of beach when the tide is out and streams running either side, one which is ideal for little ones to play in. Cafe opens in summer.
