Today Cornwall lucked out on the weather front, and everyone flocked to the beach. The traffic caused by such a massive amount of people was not pleasant, but once we arrived, we concluded it was well worth it.
Crantock beach is situated on the outskirts of Newquay, and is the largest and (in my opinion) the best beach in the area. I have been visiting Crantock beach my whole life, all year round, sun or snow, and it’s always a happy experience. It is also one of the few beaches that allow dogs all year round.
Sadly, the parking seems to increase every year, and reached between £3/£5 this year, as it is run by the National Trust, but it’s definitely worth it.
The beach has toilets near the car park, a hut which hires out wet suits and surf boards, and of course there is a place to purchase ice creams and drinks.
