- Porth Joke is a great north-west facing narrow cove with a sandy beach, rock pools and caves. Often less busy than other local beaches but partly due to no facilities. Porth Joke is a hidden gem, tucked away between Crantock and Holywell Bay on the North Cornish coast near the popular town of Newquay. It’s name is derived from the Cornish word ‘Pol Lejouack’ meaning Jackdaw Cove. Porth Joke is a National Trust beach and there are two car parks within walking distance. There are no facilities at Porth Joke, it’s as nature intended!
- Crantock beach has sand dunes backing a wide sandy beach with easy access. You have the tidal river Gannel entering the sea at the northern end of the beach, so beware of currents and rips. For surfers you have a consistent river break by the river Gannel. Also, with big Atlantic swells the southern end can have a good left hander. Beginners should avoid big swell days. Nearby Crantock (approx. 2 miles) is a picturesque village with a selection of art and craft shops, tea room, couple of pubs, separated from the busy tourist town of Newquay by the River Gannel. Crantock beach is a 45 minute walk from Newquay town centre via the foot ferry. Toilets nearby, National Trust operated car park behind the beach, seasonal lifeguard (Mat – end of September). Foot ferry operates during the summer months to take you across the Gannel to the Newquay side where you can find a cafe.

Fistral Bay consists of three beaches:South Fistral North Fistral Little Fistral which is a small bay further to the North accessible only at low tide. Best known for its surf the west-facing beach gets Atlantic swells producing constant waves. North Fistral beach has surf all the time but is best with the big Atlantic swells. Good for beginners although can get very crowded in summer. South Fistral beach works best on mid to high tides. Suitable for beginners although can have some dangerous rip currents.
