"Towan Beach" Newquay Things to Do Tip by grayfo

Newquay Things to Do: 48 reviews and 89 photos


Towan is the closest beach to the town centre and is bordered on the western edge by the harbour and at the East by a tall rocky outcrop called 'the Island' which is connected to the mainland by a suspension footbridge. The beach can get extremely busy in the summer due to its level access and it?s proximity to the harbour entrance producing little swell. At low tide Towan links up with the other Newquay beaches to the East of it - Great Western and Tolcarne - forming one long continuous sandy strip.
