Holywell Bay

Approached through the little village of Cubert off the main Newquay to Redruth road.

There is a National Trust car park at the head of the beach, together with a small shop, two pubs and toilets.
The beach is long and sandy with large rolling sand dunes giving protection from the wind whatever the direction. A small stream wanders down one side of the beach and is a favourite with young children damming it up. The beach itself is flat for much of the tide but does rise at high tide. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months and it is strongly recommended that bathing is between the fixed flags. Holywell, like all Newquay beaches is on the Cornwall north coast and the currents can be hazardous.


A lovely beach, soft sand and high dunes.
