Towan Beach - Newquay
Towan Beach is at the heart of Newquay, one of the liveliest resorts in Cornwall, at the bottom of a steeply sloping hill. The beach is bordered to the west by the harbour and at the east by 'the Island' a towering rocky outcrop which is connected to the mainland by a suspension footbridge.
The beaches at both Great Western and Tolcarne can be reached at low tide forming one extended sandy strip.
