Great surf beach, especially for bodyboarders wishing to ride the famous wedge.

High tide bodyboarders playground! Great bar, cafe and apartments too. Steep steps, no dogs, Best bit of Newquay!

sat in the hotel room watching the sun go down over Tolcarne beach what a beautiful sight. On a morning the sun comes up just as nice.

We never went down here, but had an excellent view over it from the street above. Tranquil just to look at it.

This is one of our favourite beaches. We are both 55 but we had a ball on the belly boards, a little steep to get to but there are rails all the way down great cafe to get amazing cream teas and much much more.

This could easily be in the Mediterranean! What an awesome beach, the waves look pretty intimidating some of those surfers are nuts!
