This beach is edged on one side by cliffs like a cake, topped in grassy green icing. Rock pools dip in at the bottom of the cliff and part of the beach is sheltered by it, the other buffeted by winds which make this a popular surfing destination – it's also a good place to learn to surf. The sand, and it is sand, is quite golden which is why this beach attracts the crowds in summer. There's refreshments etc. to be found in Mawgan Porth and you can catch the bus to and from Newquay just across the road from the beach.
