Just North of the harbour town of Newquay lies the horse shoe shaped sandy haven of Lusty Glaze Beach Resort, a privately owned cove of calm and clarity where the Atlantic laps the shore and the pace becomes just that little bit slower.
This secluded cove on the outskirts of Newquay is one of Cornwall's hidden gems. Crowned Britain's Best Beach by The Sunday Times, Lusty Glaze Beach is an oasis that’s famed for its towering cliffs, white sand, brilliant surf and panoramic sunsets.

The bar and restaurant is at the heart of the beach, offering a relaxed, intimate and friendly atmosphere with gasp-inducing views and famous fiery sunsets. No matter where you sit, it really is wining and dining at any time of the year - either soak up the sunshine on the terrace in the summer or enjoy a cosy dinner by the log burner in the winter.
Music plays a big part in the Lusty Glaze calendar, with free live music evenings every week of the year (Wednesday evenings through the summer months (June - August) and every Friday in Winter (September - May). If you could capture the essence of an endless summer in one evening then their legendary Sundowner Sessions would come pretty close...Securing the top spot in The Times most picturesque music venues, Lusty Glaze transforms the beach into a concert venue for its Headline sessions - it doesn't get better than watching the sun set over the Atlantic, with your toes in the sand and a beverage in hand as the sounds of live music echo around the cove.
