Nine beaches in and around Newquay have been included in a Good Beach Guide signalling excellent water quality. The Marine Conservation Society has launched its silver anniversary edition of the good beach guide, which features 516 out of 754 UK bathing beaches tested last year for water quality.
The nine beaches are Great Western, Towen, Lusty Glaze, Tolcarne, Fistral, Mawgan Porth, Watergate Bay, Crantock, and Holywell Bay. Newquay is just 6 miles from our self catering villas on Atlantic Reach. So all these beaches of outstanding beauty can be reached easily. There is no better way to wind down to the pace of Cornwall than taking a stroll along one these beautiful beaches taking in the balmy air and golden sands.
