  • Fistral Beach, Newquay is at the centre of the Cornwall surf scene and hosts major surf tournaments throughout the year. Fistral beach is one of the most consistent and best surfing beaches in the UK and Europe.

    Located a short wall from Newquay town centre. The beach is just around 750m long backed by sand dunes.

    Fistral Bay consists of three beaches:

    • South Fistral
    • North Fistral
    • Little Fistral which is a small bay further to the North accessible only at low tide.

     

    Best known for its surf the west-facing beach gets Atlantic swells producing constant waves. North Fistral beach has surf all the time but is best with the big Atlantic swells. Good for beginners although can get very crowded in summer. South Fistral beach works best on mid to high tides. Suitable for beginners although can have some dangerous rip currents.

    A 20 minute walk from Newquay town centre.

    International Surf Centre, cafe, restaurants, bars, seasonal lifeguards (May – end of September), car parks although can get very busy in summer months.

    Dogs allowed.
