Facilities

We are pleased to offer a number of beach facilities

Great Western Surf Café is a fresh addition to Newquay’s buzzing culinary scene. Taking over the reins from the burger-led restaurant, The Slope, we thought it the perfect time to introduce a wider choice of lighter options and vegan-friendly dishes and to give the restaurant a little makeover. And so GWSC was born!

Sometimes you just want to sit down on the beach and enjoy a drink in the sun. That’s why we’ve put The Surf Shack right on the beach where you can order everything from coffees, soft drinks to beers and wine.

Learn to surf with NQY Surfing School at one of the most consistently good beaches for learning how to surf! With protection from winds and clean small waves for beginners, it is the ideal spot to start surfing!

Hire all your beach equipment such as surfboards, wetsuits, bodyboards, stand up paddle boards (SUPs) and kayaks. Located right on the sand of the beach you won’t have to walk far!

Additional to the above we also offer the following:

  • RNLI Lifeguard Cover

    Great Western Beach has RNLI lifeguards from May until September. Check lifeguard season dates, weather and tide times by clicking here: RNLI website.

  • Toilets

    There are public toilets on the beach which are open 10am until 6pm during the summer months – please note, the toilets will close in the winter.
