Harbour Beach may be Newquay’s smallest, but what it lacks in size, it definitely makes up in character. Enclosed behind the historic fishing port walls, which gave the town it’s name back in 1439, the beach is completely covered at high tide, but when the water drops back, revealed is a beautiful sandy and sheltered sun trap.
During summer months, the harbour is a buzz with fishermen landing their daily catch, pleasure boats offering trips out across the bay and even curious seals following the boats back looking for their lunch! Harbour Beach is a real hidden gem that often plays second fiddle to the resorts larger beaches, but is definitely worth a visit if you are in Newquay on holiday.
