This evening, I am focusing on Fistral, one of Britain’s pre-eminent surfing beaches.

Fistral Beach is in Newquay, Cornwall, S.W. England, about 165 miles from Bristol and 280 miles from London.

Newquay has a population of 20,000 and is primarily a tourist destination. The town can be accessed by road, rail and air.

Fistral Beach faces the Atlantic Ocean and is about 750m/2460 feet long.

Although suitable for a wide range of family beach activities, main emphasis is on surfing:

  • Venue for various surfing events and championships.
  • Supporting infrastructure includes surfing equipment rental, accommodation, cafes, showers and associated facilities.
  • Unofficially split into two sections: North section suitable for surfing at all tides; South section best at mid-high tides.
  • Located about 20 minute walk from town centre ( 5 minute drive).
