Great Western Beach
Awarded a Blue Flag in 2019
Great Western is a one of four Newquay beaches popular with both surfers and families alike, with caves in the surrounding cliffs and rock pools to explore at low tide. This west-facing beach is situated between Towan and Tolcarne beaches and is reached either by walking along the sands at low tide or via a tarmaced path to the left of the Great Western Hotel.
Lifeguards are stationed at the beach between 19th May and 30th September (2018)
