Click here for bed and breakfast accommodation near Towan Beach


Next to the harbour and sheltered by the headland, Towan beach is the safest of all the Newquay beaches. A favourite with families and young children, the beach is flat with excellent sand good for sand castles and ball games. Unlike most of Newquay's beaches the tide comes right into the wall on the higher tides. All amenities are available but there is no car park. The beach is just a few minutes walk from the town centre with all its shops/restaurants/takeaways etc. The beach also has a tidal swimming pool under 'The Island' which is very popular with younger children.


A popular little beach within a few minutes walk of the town centre. Very popular with families and young children. Offers safe bathing and excellent sand quality.
