Towan Beach, Cornwall

Information


Towan beach is a good sized sheltered sandy beach adjacent to the quay with rocks to explore. The beach is the closest to the town centre and is often referred to as “Town Beach”. The proximity to the town and the level access, makes it very busy during the summer. The beach has a small, sea filled swimming pool for families to use in the summer season.

It is popular with swimmers, surfers and body boarders due to the protective westerly swells.

Small car park at the beach but you can park anywhere in the town. Seasonal lifeguards (May – end of September), toilets, cafe, deck chair, windbreak, and surf board rental. You also have all the facilities of Newquay town just 5 minutes away.

Towan Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Towan Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
