Crantock Beach - A short walk away

Crantock Beach

Crantock Beach - distance 600yards Beautiful Crantock Beach is ideal for surfers, bathers, walkers or just sunbathers. The warm water of the Gannel at low tide is popular with children. Swimming in the Gannel at any other time however can be very dangerous due to strong currents; therefore parents and adult bathers must beware. Lifeguards, who do offer advice as to where on the beach it is safe to enter the water, patrol the beach in the summer months. There is a beach cafe and ice creams hut but again open only during the season. During this time of year you can also cross the Gannel at Fern Pit, either over the footbridge at low tide or by ferry. This service does not continue into the evening.

Other beaches to visit are; Porth Joke (Polly Joke to the locals) up at West Pentire. It is a long walk down, and there are no facilities once you get there, but it is worth the effort! Fistral Beach in Newquay of course most famous for surfing, is a beach for all age groups. Porth Beach on the outskirts of Newquay heading out in the Padstow direction, with parking on the beach is often a favourite with families.
