SAFETY: Please be aware of the tide times and familiarise yourself with these beach safety tips. There is a lifeguard service on many beaches too.

Quiet and secluded coves and beaches

Porth Joke Beach – also known as Polly Joke is a usually quiet beach just 5 miles away from Newquay. It is a fair walk from the car park to the beach and is a wonderful unspoilt sandy piece of paradise.

Greenaways Beach is near Polzeath at Trebethrick. It’s a little cove and accessed via steep steps down from the coast path.

Tregardock Beach is situated between Port Isaac and Tintagel and is quite difficult to access – which is probably why it is a fairly quiet beach. If you don’t mind a climb down across the rocks and enjoy exploring, this beach is worth a visit. Aim to arrive 2 hours before a spring tide and please do watch out for the incoming tide.


Great for families and beach activities

Polzeath Beach is literally one minute away from the holiday accommodation at Atlantic View Holidays. It is a popular beach and one of the safest on this stretch of coast. It’s a great family beach and has some brilliant surfing

Perranporth (Penhale Sands) – has a natural swimming pool and decent surf. The Watering Hole at Perranporth serves food as well as drinks. Also, the beach is dog-friendly all year round.

Harlyn Bay – a spacious, sandy beach popular with surfers and families. It’s dog-friendly all year round and has rock pools, sand dunes and a small stream to play in.

Mawgan Porth Beach – a big sandy beach with numerous rock pools and caves to explore. Also popular with surfers and there is a pub in the village if you want to treat yourself to a refreshing drink and maybe a snack on the way home. This beach is also dog-friendly all year round.
