Lovely beach, central to Newquay. Cafe and beach huts (to hire) on the beach. Toilets close by too. Nice flat wlk along to the adjacent beaches; only when tide is out though. Lovely sand, clean beach, ideal for all ages.

Gorgeous beach which is why we always stay at Rockland's right overlooking tolcarne. Lots of steps down to beach so if you have prams or restricted ability there's a pleasant walk down hill just past the stairs.
