Little Fistral Beach

Click here for bed and breakfast accommodation near little Fistral Beach


Just to the north of Fistral beach flanked by the splendid Headland Hotel (one of the few remaining hotels that provide an excellent example of days gone by) is Little Fistral. A rocky little cove carved out of the Newquay Headland, Little Fistral is a favourite with the more experienced surfers when the conditions are suitable.

To the north of Little Fistral and off the point of Newquay Headland is 'The Cribber'. When conditions are right, usually in the winter, a reef can make the surf enormous, breaking into the headland with thunderous roaring. Only the foolhardy or very experienced should even consider surfing here.
