Great Western Beach
Located in the heart of Newquay, Great Western Beach is a sandy oasis that first introduced Newquay to the surfing world. At low tide, visitors can explore intriguing rock pools and caves embedded in the surrounding cliffs. The beach, named after the Great Western Railway, is accessible via a moderately steep path or from its neighbouring beaches, Towan or Tolcarne, during low tide.
Dogs are welcome throughout the year. The RNLI lifeguards patrol from May to September. The beachside Great Western Surf Café offers refreshments, and parking is available at the nearby Manor Car park. Public toilets are open during the summer but remain closed in the winter.
