Guide to Cornwall's beaches

Tolcarne Beach

Tolcarne and Newquay Beaches
Sandy Cove Fishing Scrap

Large, west-facing expanse of sand that joins up with neighbouring Great Western and Lusty Glaze at low tide. Great views of the harbour and headland plus some good but safe surf make this a popular beach with families, although some are put off by the walk down the high cliffs, which involves more than two hundred steps.
