Great Western Beach, located in the heart of Newquay, opposite the train station and home to Newquay Surfing School and Seabreeze Bar & Cafe.
The beach works on all tides but is best at mid tide. Generally 1 foot smaller than Fistral beach so Great Western Beach is a great option for learner and intermediate surfers!

Offshore when wind is from South-westerlys to East.
