- ABOUT THE SPOT
Surfing in Fistral Beach, Newquay, South West England United Kingdom
This 2460 ft / 750 m long sandy beach faces west-northwest onto the Atlantic and is considered to be one of the top surfing beaches in the UK and Europe. Its North side works better at all tides when big swells are coming in. On low tide, be aware as cracking barrels and peaks may be produced. South Fistral has its best swell direction west/southwest. It is better from mid to high tide but, even then watch out for dangerous rips.
Fistral Beach has some great views overlooking the beach, golden sands, rock pools and amazing sunsets. It offers facilities such as first aid room, lifeguards, changing facilities, storage, amusements and eateries. It is also the perfect venue for festivals and events including Board-masters – Europe’s largest surf and skate festival. Though there is something for everyone in Fistral Beach, it is the best place to enjoy the sun, sand and surf!
