Harbour Beach Newquay
Harbour beach Newquay is a small north facing small beach, part of a working harbour where you can watch the fishermen bring back the catch. Only accessible at low tide. Close to the town centre so an easy walk from many hotels and guest houses.
As the harbour dries out at low tide the boats lie marooned on the sand waiting on the next tide to float and go to sea. Harbour watching is always a popular pastime. There are no lifeguards on duty on this beach so care should be taken.
The beach is entirely covered at high tide. It is easily accessible and offers safe and sheltered swimming (although no surf).
- Popular with families due to the safe sheltered bathing.
- Limited parking
The harbour itself is home to the Annual Newquay Fish Festival. Now in its 18th year, the Fish Festival celebrates the heritage and local cuisine right with the very best that seafood has to offer.
