  • Crantock beach has sand dunes backing a wide sandy beach with easy access. You have the tidal river Gannel entering the sea at the northern end of the beach, so beware of currents and rips.

    For surfers you have a consistent river break by the river Gannel. Also, with big Atlantic swells the southern end can have a good left hander. Beginners should avoid big swell days.

    Nearby Crantock (approx. 2 miles) is a picturesque village with a selection of art and craft shops, tea room, couple of pubs, separated from the busy tourist town of Newquay by the River Gannel.

    Crantock beach is a 45 minute walk from Newquay town centre via the foot ferry.

    Toilets nearby, National Trust operated car park behind the beach, seasonal lifeguard (Mat – end of September).

    Foot ferry operates during the summer months to take you across the Gannel to the Newquay side where you can find a cafe.
