The walk to Fistral Beach is fantastic, the scenery is absolutely breathtaking and it's really worth the walk from the town centre.

We stayed in a Hotel at one end of Fistral Beach with a sea view. The 2 days we were in Newquay, the sun was shining and the beach was full of surfers. The lifeguards were on duty and patrolling the beach during the day vigilantly. We walked across a couple of times watching everyone enjoying themselves.

I can'believe people are saying this is the best surfing beach in the world. Perranporth is better than Newquay. The waves are small and sometimes inconsistent and break all over the place. Bossy lifeguards out for one foot waves. This beach is really a only good for bodyboarding. If you think this is good surf try south broom sa or bali. It would cost the same in flights and hotel.

Great beach for surfing and wuld highly recommend surfing schools there which we have used a number of times now. Access to the beach is a bit steep so difficult for some.
